I ate your story like a fresh strawberry, Daria! A different perspective on life than what I experience but one that is ripe and succulent. In my youth, I thought great travels were in my future but that is not how my life unfolded. Perhaps a few regrets tucked in the fabric of my days but I am now content with the place I call home. Turns out my need to feel planted so I could grow was more important than my need to move so I could experience. And, while I stay rooted, I have the opportunity to take small travels with writers like you. Thank you for letting me have a glimpse of your life.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
