“Sometimes all that we can know is there’s no such thing as no regrets…

I’m not running, I’m not hiding, I’m not reaching

I’m just resting in the arms of the great wide open

Gonna pull my soul in and I’m almost home”

— “Almost Home”, Mary Chapin Carpenter

After three months, nearly 13,000 miles, nine states, four Canadian provinces/territories, and an ungodly amount of canned soup I returned home today. While the trip is over, strangely enough it felt like more of a beginning than an ending as I was turning off of 101 towards the house. The future is bright and very full of possibilities.
