Memories of a Lifetime

As this trip goes on I’m learning a lot, seeing a lot, and having the experience of a lifetime. But I couldn’t have predicted as many memories as I already have. It’s not the big things that you anticipate but the little unkowns. They’re endless. They are the kind of memories that you reminisce about for years and years, the ones that never get old to laugh about. The ones that bring old friends close once again.
When I go to bed on nights like tonight I can’t possibly get rid of the smile. It’s a continual thought of joy and bliss. It won’t go away! Sometimes I need a pinch to ask if I’m really living this out. And I’ve said it before, it does not take very long to bond with people. Come in as a stranger and leave as best friends. That’s what I’m feeling again and again.
I’m in complete awe that I’m now 9 states from home, over 6,000 miles into this trip, and yet I feel right at home wherever I go. I feel welcome and cared for. There’s a side to this trip that’s probably the most important thing, those sentimental memories. When I leave Boise, just like all the other towns, that’s what we share together, we share those memories.
I’m reminded of the movie “The Beach” and the photo they take along the beach where they are all jumping in the air. It’s a photo that’s cherished amongst them forever. I have a stack of those photos now. This is an emotional side that just brings me right down to earth, to the meaning of life I guess. And I have to say it’s getting even more amazing.
