I've met some incredible people along the way and was privileged to experience some once-in-a-lifetime events. Old friends who understood my journey and opened their homes to me for some much needed home cooked dinner and deep conversation, not to mention some lessons in mahjong. An invitation to visit Ghana and join a friend in exploring the country side, drinking in the African spirit of community and hospitality, and roaming the streets of Accra at night like locals. A small band of misfit Christians who opted to do things differently by deliberately simplifying their faith to the core necessities, which simply meant loving God and loving others. Spending time in what felt like purgatory while working at retail for the first time in my life, and building deep camaraderie with them in the trenches. Finding my way to Corporate America and meeting incredibly smart, funny, and nice people. Truly a dangerous combination.
But now lies ahead a new chapter in a new town. I imagine there's more to be learned, more to be experienced. More searching and more finding. Oh yeah, and more Pliny The Elder.
