but i decided to read my pre-lyon thoughts from last year.
and wow, how much has changed. the city that was unknown to me last year where i completely winged a trip in less than a day is now a city that i now have friends in. not to mention, i’ve changed. me today is quite different from me a year ago. from me tomorrow. from me in a year. and so, i think that is one reason why i’m attracted to journaling/blogging – it is a reminder of all the changes that happen in life.
i’m meeting that stranger from facebook (and perhaps stranger isn’t the correct word anymore). i’m going to eat tartiflette with my favorite lyonnaise. i’m going to wish another a happy birthday.
but then, some things don’t change:
“and now, i’m going to come back with hopefully some new friends, lots of photos, and definitely lots of delicious things.”
those were my words last year. and it happened. and i’m determined to make it happen again this year.
lyon, bring it on! i’ll be doing the bise with you tonight.
