I have to do a travelogue of this sorts, one day. Hope that day comes.
How can one word still evoke so much?

Again I am standing with feet between two lands. Yet for once I am not shaken, but stilled by this dissonance, this ambivalence… Life continues to move forward into beautiful and wicked dichotomy.
