The sunset tonight.
It’s like I can see every tree on the mountains separately, but I can also see the whole of what they all look like together.
Just having a science revelation recently.
Finally seeing the natural world as an intriguing being, instead of something to take for granted.
It’s not just because of California. California is beautiful, but so is pretty much everywhere else in the world, including my hometown.
But it’s taken years of moving for me to finally be able to see.
And I want to keep learning to see more, everywhere I go and with everyone I meet.
I also want to find myself, just like everyone else in the world.
And I’m uncovering a bit more of myself everyday.

I’m getting people’s personal international travel blog articles sent to my inbox daily, and we’re playing her music on the radio in the room.

We got this.
I’m going to stop being nostalgic about college, and make the world my campus. Let’s learn about everyone and everybody. And realize that everyone has something to teach you, you just have to follow your drive, and those with similar paths will be right there with you.
There is so much culture that coexist right next to me that I’ve never explored. It’s one thing to believe in equality academically. It’s another thing to actually take the time to understand other cultures and the art and magic produced that is completely unique to the people who make it.
