A letter home, the old fashioned way.

August 15th, 2013, 6pm

It was 36.7°C with few clouds. The breeze was gentle.

How do you convey 30 hours of distance to a 5 and an 8 year old? How do you draw a picture of these huge mountains - a picture they’ll understand? How do you answer the text that says, ‘I miss you so much’? You can carry them in your heart but they can’t see through your eyes, or hear through your ears, or feel the wild joy this new place stirs inside you.

I write. I don't like shoes. I do like cheese.
