NOVEMBER 26, 2011

I have been really thankful this weekend, not just because of the holiday but it is the first time since my return that I have spent quietly alone at home without my to-do list in front of me. I cooked all day on Thanksgiving and had friends and people I consider family over for dinner. While cooking I carried on multiple communications with old friends and new friends that I met on my trip. My list of friends has doubled and it seems weird that I would not have met these people if I had not Done Turning Around America.  My trip has made me hyper aware of the abundance I have in my life. I was nervous about the idea of coming home after a year on the road alone. I thought what could ever be better than all those adventures and visual meals of incredible landscapes that I devoured everyday. I feel like Dorothy coming home after her romp through OZ. I have the most wonderful friends, and community right here. I left excited about the adventure and have come home to realize how incredible my own city is. Yesterday a friend and I road our bicycles to the Museum of Fine Arts, I savored the familiarity of the trip along the inner corridor. I am excited and committed to exploring city in the way I explored places on my trip. Sitting around the table at Thanksgiving dinner I looked around the table at my friends and thought what a truly lucky person I am.
