I really don't know what I'm about to say but i thought it'd be fitting to type one last blog post from utahpia. We depart tuesday morn- in a way it can't come fast enough. But yet on that morn i will mourn. utah has been most excellent. I will miss many things- the mountains, of course, i love them so. They make me feel protected; I am cupped in their hand. They guide me home. Perched on their peaks while skiing fills me with waves of reverence- nothing is more spiritual for me than a quiet place on a mountain. Of course, i'll also miss the bounteous cheap mexican food (and mexi's). Additionally: dry heat. I-15. Moab. Diego's, Settebello, Bombay House, Zupa's (our 1st date), Cafe Rio, chick-fil-a (we'll be an hour away). Aaron's family, my friends. quality people.
You know, the past few years i've lived here have been the most monumental de mi vida. To me, the years since 2005 were the years in which I evolved into a real person. Not just an adult, but a person. It's funny because the years i was in high school, say 2001 to 2005, i feel i remained stagnant; there wasn't a noticeable amount of wisdom, personality or character development. But 2005 to 2009, those have been blessed years. I feel like i'm so very nearer to the person i'm to ultimately become. But i probably have a lot further to go, it was only 4 years. Maybe each time i begin a new phase of life i'll become a little more complete.
On a less contemplative note, I am bouncing in my chair about driving I-80 to our next home. I am ready. I think living in the basement in bountiful the last few months helped with that. I need my own kitchen STAT! i miss our cooking muchly.
*I went back and forth on the title of this post for about 3 minutes. 'bare' with me or 'bear' with me? I went with the former. but now i'm thinking it looks like an invitation to come skinny dipping. So i should probably just change the title, but i'll leave it because to get to this point in the post you indeed had to bare with me.
