Beat Notes

About Going Home (Part II).

My adventures in Austria ended in mid-December. Before I knew it, my bags were packed, my finals were written and my time in Austria was over. Suddenly I was chasing the sun. I never quite caught it, but I did make it back home.

Some people travel and decide that “home” means something different to them, that the world becomes their home rather than their town. I’ve always seen it a bit differently. My family is my home. My friends are my home. My community is my home. I can, of course, always find a way to feel at home in another place. But my heart always pulls toward those I hold most dear. Going home for Christmas was such a blessing–I got to answer that feeling in my chest saying that I was ready for comfort, for lots of hot chocolate, for decorating the tree. And once I got there? It was magical

But, just like my time in Austria, time at home flew by. Suddenly I was running from the sun all over again and starting a new adventure.

Here’s to a Happy New Year. Thanks for stopping by.
