A special thought and a special moment, every day. A special thing, every week. For a special year.

Day 59 - Dad
Thought of the day: A week in the bay area flew by - we're leaving again tomorrow but it feels as if we just landed no more than a couple of hours ago. My travel always seems to unfold like this: in the beginning, I am excited and in shock at how different everything is; and then at some point, it seems as if I had been there forever and that's how everything was supposed to be; and when it's about time to leave, all the previous emotions of excitement, shock, acceptance, and sometimes resignation are replaced by a singular emotion of longing to stay. I am lucky to be able to travel and stay in different places, sometimes in different cultures, once in a while. I feel like someone who lives on several threads of parallel lives and switches between them whenever opportunity arises. It's challenging at times but mostly I enjoy it.

This is a chore-filled trip...here I'm shopping for a fireplace for my parents.
