First Day in Pakistan
As I woke up yesterday on what was a Lahore morning for me, but was really 1.30 in the afternoon, I washed my face in my friend’s sink on the fourth floor of an apartment building attached to Liberty Market. A huge bird – it looked like an eagle to my Canadian eyes – swooped down from the roof of the building; cars, rickshaws, motorcycles and people bustled underneath it.
Before I left, one of my colleagues presented me with an image of a crowd of people in a balcony, cheering me on. Those people are my former colleagues at the United Church, my friends, and family – both chosen and by birth.
I definitely feel you all here with me in spirit, cheering me on! It’s so amazing to feel like I’ve got this whole journey – this whole life – ahead of me. And who knows where it will lead! 🙂
