The Coming Back

I love this quote. Always have (since the day Helenaki mou opened that card from her sister in that apartment in Athens, Greece). Always will. Now, more than ever, feels like a good time to remember it.

"Because in a sense, it is the coming back, the return, which gives meaning to the going forth. We don't really know where we've been until we come back to where we were. Only, where we were may not be as it was because of who we've become, which is, after all, why we left."

I love that quote! Was with some of the W&M girls this weekend (including Jess Barak!) and it made me think of you so I'm catching up on the blog :) Sounds like you're still doing well!! Can't wait to see you once you get back in the states! Happy new year :)
