Has it already been half a year since our last LoZapalooza?
Is it really 2011 already? What did I do in 2010?
I guess a lot. Don't worry, this isn't a "WHERE IS MY LIFE GOING" post. I'm just genuinely in the moment of being surprised at how quickly the last six months have gone.
Perhaps Ernest's comment about the "hyperbolic time chamber" were correct, inadvertently, just in a more general way. In 4 months, I've grown as though I lived 16 months in Vancouver.
One of the conditions of the HTC is that if you stay in it for too long, you can never leave. I feel like for that to happen, I would have to stay here for a year or more without ever visiting home, and that`s not going to happen. Right now I`m eager to get back to my own environment. I have too much on my mind, that`s been built up over this time, with no way to output it.
An explosion of creative juices.
The amount of knowledge and growth I`ve acquired on this trip is nowhere near my peak, though. So I will have to return some day, and finish my training.
Leaving now is just to take a rest.
