The day we would say farewell to the Pacific Ocean had arrived, although neither of us knew how long that farewell would last. That was the beauty of it all, I was saying hello to so many new things without really having to say goodbye to anything. Not knowing what would come next for me, where I would end up or with whom; that uncertainty allowed me to experience all of those new places and adventures without feeling obligated to let go of my home. If I had really thought about it I would have realized how unlikely it was that my adventures would lead me back to where I had started, and I wouldn’t have been able to avoid the sentimentality and impending nostalgia that comes with saying goodbye.
