Tired in a full, satisfied way. It occurred to me today that, while traveling, I have never once had that feeling of not having anything to look forward to. Even when all this moving about had gotten wearisome, and I could hardly see the point of it anymore, the old emptiness stayed away; I didn't notice its absence until Jason reminded me, and I remembered how often I used to feel that way, as if waiting for my life to begin.
At moments like these I can believe that traveling like this changes your life. Of course it's not all I imagined it to be, and sometimes I am bitterly disappointed, mostly in myself. But I see what a variety of lives people live--I realize that everyone is all right, and I will be, too.
