And Everything Becomes Clear

ITALY. The interesting thing about finally being in the place you've been dreaming about and carrying in your heart for the yearlong finally gives you the confirmation that it is, after all, not what you're after. Or want.

The beautiful countryside, the citiesI've seen them but strangely I didn't feel much. Yes, they're beautiful and that is it. Nothing more. Perhaps I had some preset ideas, but in reality, not much are real. Do you see how dangerous expectation is, even when you're trying not to set any? Subconsciously, it does affect you no matter how hard you try to moderate it. Perhaps something or someone is missing.

I still love the language, that much is true. After all, it all started with the word "gallina"...
