In favor of “far-flungery”
January has rolled around and we find ourselves at the top of the year. I find that leaving the country has been a fine thing to do. It’s hard to pick up in the middle of winter and fling oneself out the door, especially to the other side of the world. It feels wrong in some ways, like one is supposed to stay put by the fire.
But travel calls, and like a demanding lover,
you risk leaving the comforts of home for
some unknown destination that has your heart by its strings
and away you must go.
