To Awaken Alone

To awaken alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. – Freya Stark

I remember awakening one summer morning the first month I was in the Netherlands thinking, “how lucky am I”. Breathing in the scent of the North Sea and flowers, I laid there a minute taking in the fact that I was living my dream.

I was here. 

Getting up, I tripped over my dutch language books as I made my way to the window.  I was looking at my European garden.

How quaint. 

There was a cat in the garden and I thought, “does he know how lucky he is to be living in Europe?”  Silly I know, but I was finally here. 

I actually left.

I got out of New Mexico.

To awaken in a strange town is a strange sensation. A strange, yet beautiful sensation.
