This is the part I get confused, really, really confused. We get to that point where we know the people around us, we’re in love with this person, that restaurant, this smile, that routine, and then, BOOM, BAM! We have to whack it all out of place and freak out the entire system. Can’t just leave well enough alone, can we? Can’t just calmly settling into the quiet lull of pleasant normality, can we now? Apparently not.

So, after five glorious months of spiritual growth through teaching dozens and learning from that many, plus a few precious teachers; after five months of getting in shape more, writing so much, cuddling, really good studies with the kids, both Kobi and I doing vippasana meditation courses, temple bar dance mania and then calm moments within, and tons of laughs, joints, and good memories with so many amazing backpackers who have entered our souls and moved on; we leave the Garden Village Guesthouse.

A few videos to come  to capture our last 24 hours here. Can you believe that one fourth, five out of twenty-one months of world travel, have been spent here?! here! here! And… here we go, back into the unknown. [Deep breath, and go].

Too Choked Up

Kobi buys those bus tickets outta here. (Really long, bitchy post to come about how badly that night bus sucked!)

 

When The Clock Stops

We can actually see floor again. Woah. Every time we pack up, we go through every, every, every thing. We marvel on how is it we actually accumulated this much shit again, and then, get rid of most of it. And, we pack up and leave behind those little nothings that made us feel ‘home’, the fridge, the table, the clock, oh, oh, the clock…..

 

 

Ever had to begin the ending? Ever had to start the end? Ever walked down that slow process towards the closing of some meaningful chapter in your life. I must admit, I still have not toughened up enough to do it with grace. I haven’t, but I will. I’m getting infinitely better, infinitely slow, but definitely. Share away.
