Awaiting Departure

Well I figured I should post something before I took off. I am leaving Seattle in three days, flying into Cancun and then busing to Guatemala from there. Can you believe I got a $78.00 ticket to Cancun (thanks Kathy)! I'm all packed and ready to go, getting really anxious. Over the past few days my mood about traveling could easily be graphed as a sinusoidal ftn. I'm excited, nervous, curious, and really anxious to find out what it's going to be like to be on my own for the next 8-12 months. Saying goodbye to my friends was pretty hard, and I know that I am going to feel really lonely as I adjust to a life where I can't just pick up my cellphone and talk to people. With all that said, I have never been more excited about anything in my entire life! I have many preconceptions about what the first few days are going to be like, but I won't be surprised if it is absolutely nothing like what I am expecting. Well that's all for now...

August,

A compassion meditation for your trip:

May all human hearts be cleansed of anger,
and all human souls be freed from fear.
May all human beings be liberated from suffering,
and may all human beings be healed.
May all human hearts be filled with compassion,
And all human souls guided by the light of God.

Travel well,

Love,

Dad

I am excited to read about your wandering & wondering, August! Any man who can describe his mood as sinusoidal is a man whose blog I want to read.
