Sometimes, when I see pictures of certain places in Central and Eastern Europe, I have such an emotional and physical reaction. It tears me up inside; it’s so hard for me to explain. It’s so hard for me to put into words.
It’s like it makes me very happy and it makes me very sad and it makes me not quite sure where I belong.
And the fact that I can’t ever seem to write about it properly haunts me, the way these photographs do.

Your mention of your memories about living in Europe made me feel empathy for you. Maybe you can again visit there someday and bask in the recollections–and write them in a special essay or even a book!
You have such beautiful words my friend. xoxo
Thank you for that, Lindsay. Especially since I felt so tongue-tied over this. xo
