“Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.”
― Isabelle Eberhardt, The Nomad: The Diaries of Isabelle Eberhardt
There were a number of things I had on my mind during those last few days in Jordan that would have made great blog posts, but I never could quite find the time or will to write it up, and, since returning, military training and the start of a new semester at school have kept me from getting back to it.
I want to quickly put up a post though about how grateful I am to be back in my home country. I do love this place despite its many flaws and failings. I suspect my next adventure outside the United States is not too far off, but for now I’m happy to be in the land that I love. There is so much I have to be grateful for.
