family gatherings are always interesting – especially when i’ve been away. it is so easy to forget the quirks and nuances of family. the things that bring us together – wedge us to opposing sides – and love each other in spite of and because of it all.

this holiday season is not different. at the annual gumbo my aunt throws everyone that knows me started conversations the same way…”linnea, welcome home. where and when are you going next?”

i could pretend not to understand why they would ask…and i do…but mostly it is just a reminder of how much time i spend away and how unsure i am of next steps.
