Back and Forth Friendships

I’m done. Well, for now, I’m done limp-running to try and catch the next flight. I’m done trying to fight the tired-but-need-to-keep-going feeling as we pass through another airport. Travelling can be a long story. I don’t find it that easy to sum up what it is like going back and forth, but it sure is nice to be back.

Immigration: Highs and Lows

For almost ten years now, I have either lived as an immigrant or with an immigrant (for the last seven years there have been times when it is both at the same time). There are many interesting aspects of being a foreigner in a foreign land. I love learning new cultures and trying to figure out just how everything works. I love discovering new food or new places. It is fun to meet new people and try to understand their stories or their lives. It is really interesting trying to explain to Taryn why we do what we do the way we do it. Over the course of the years, what I have found is that living internationally (or having a wife who has lived internationally) has changed who I am and has changed how my family interacts with each.
