Alive and Well.
I’m back from Haiti! Since I landed back in the States, things have been so incredibly busy. Between midterms and multiple papers, I felt like I could hardly absorb the amazing experience I had in Haiti. When people asked, “How was Haiti?” All I could muster up was, “Heartbreaking. Joyful. Amazing. Sad. It’s still marinating; I haven’t digested it all yet.”
Now that some time has passed, I am eager to share with you all reflections from my time in Haiti. It was quite possibly the most amazing week I’ve had, and I would go back in a heartbeat if I could. I’m not sure how I’ll write the reflections, because it’s so hard to describe the experience; even my pictures do it no justice. I may just take excerpts straight out of my journal, because if I really want to reflect on the experience, I have to share the vulnerability of every moment there in an authentic way. There will be a series of posts, so stay tuned!
Please know that I am alive and well. I haven’t disappeared…I’m just taking some time before I share my reflections. Plus, a girl’s gotta do some homework every now and then. I’m back in the midst of the hustle and bustle of my regular routine, and I am thankful to say that I’m all smiles over here! Hope you are too 🙂
[The blog is still being transformed. I’ll let you know when everything is up and running! 🙂 And yes, I do love me some sepia toned photos.]
