Okay, so, in late July I took my first vacation in too long, to be with my friends Niko and Nejma at their awesome wedding outside of Paris, where I delivered a somewhat excessively philosophical speech on the socio-historic and spiritual significance of love… (yeah, really) and cried a lot.
Next it was off to Turkey with Amanda, for 10 days of awesome traveling. I love the melange of cultures and layers of history overlapping – especially in Istanbul. Awesome.
And once back in the states, it wasn’t long before it was my birthday again. Yet another lovely crazy no longer so lonely jaunt around the sun.
