Wow. Time flies like the Millenium Falcon. Passing stars at light speed. Space looks so different using Star Wars eyes. Traveling at light speed back to the point though, I write this on the fifth anniversary of me arriving in Honduras. To be honest, I can’t remember if it was the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th. I know it was after my sister’s birthday on the 3rd and before the 10th. It was a warm day like today and it hit me like a hot wet fish slap because the day or so before I had been in snowy England. A stop off at Houston, my first experience in the US, where a Salvadoran taxi driver informed Charlotte, Emma and myself that there were too many Muslims in England.
Memories. Marriage. Weddings. Jobs won. Jobs lost. Kids in Casa Alianza. Kids in Dowal School. Muggings. Friends made. Friends lost. Tears of joy and sadness. It’s thrown all over place in my brain. Like a hurricane. Invisible debris everywhere.
I make it a habit not to focus on the past too much. To look towards the future is far more commodious. But still, I invite you to look back over my blog to read some of my experiences. I started the blog a few years before I came. It too is five years old.
Honduras, you have inspired me.
