Hanging out around Tahoe for the week, I've officially returned from the summer expedition I had planned and set out for months ago. As my trip began to draw to a close, I began reflecting on all that has happened over the summer, the events that led me to where I am now, the transformations that have taken place, and the people who have blessed me with their presence in my life. I began reaching out to some of the key players to share my gratitude for their involvement, and as our connections continue to develop, I cannot express how grateful I am for everyone who has been so influential to me.
After unexpectedly extending my stay in Eugene, OR because I was loving the town and experiences I was having, I finally managed to pull myself away and start driving north to Olympia, WA. As my time to leave approached and my next adventure began, I happened upon several different quotes and new connections, all in the same day, and all with something similar to say...
First, I was browsing through some books at the place I had been, and saw Tom Robbins' book "Villa Incognito." I am a huge fan of Tom Robbins and have previously read this book so I decided to flip to two random pages, and this is what I found --
"Just because you're naked
Doesn't mean you're sexy.
Just because you're cynical
Doesn't mean you're cool.
You may tell the greatest lies
And wear a brilliant disguise
But you can't escape the eyes
Of the one who sees right through you.
In the end what will prevail
