A damp gloom has sat on the city all day; charcoal clouds, laden with fat raindrops swirl in the sky above. Tomorrow, my 16 month stay in Mexico ends, and I return to San Diego. Yet no small part of me will remain here, bound by the friendships I have made and the experiences I have lived. For the people who have made my time here special, some of whom have appeared in this blog, I can offer only profound gratitude and a promise to return. For myself, it is harder. For the past seven years, Mexico has been a huge part of who I am. After living here, my love for the place is undiminished, and my pain at leaving all the more acute. The fear of losing the relationships and knowledge I have cultivated over the past year and a half gnaws at me as I zip closed my overladen suitcases.
Leaving is hard, leaving behind is harder.
Yes, for those of you who are fans, I will continue the blog until the sizeable backlog of Mexico pictures is exhausted. I greatly appreciate your support with this venture and I hope the blog can continue to be a source of enjoyment.
