The Bird Watcher and Going Incognito


Today marks my last full day in Malatya. Saying goodbyes are never easy, especially when there is a high probability – if we are speaking honestly – that I may never see again the people who have meant so much to me for the past year. Of course, with all the downsides of social media, at least there is the comfort that I have the┬ácapability┬áto stay connected with them all.

Leaving Malatya has another added difficulty; this marks the first time in my life in which I have no definitive future ahead of me. Up until this point everything was laid out for me, and happily flowed into each other – not so anymore.

So, on leaving Malatya with a heavy heart, a brain full of uncertainty, and a soul full of excitement for what the future holds I present “The Bird Watcher.” It captures perfectly exactly what is happening as I write this… Except for the whale. That doesn’t quite fit.

I may also be incognito for the next month or so. Starting tomorrow morning, I am embarking on a month of traveling before finally reaching home, so posts will be varied at best.

Hope you are all enjoying the start of your summer!
