Have you seen that girl?


Lately, I’ve been missing this girl:


The one who smiled genuine smiles, no matter how crooked.


The one who went adventuring, even when it was scary.


The one who believed good things.

The girl who walked 10 miles at a time in the name of exploration.  The girl whose heartbreak inspired action.  The girl who wrote letters and songs and silly poems and messages in the dirt on car back-windshields.  The girl who aimed for “story” instead of “security.”

But last weekend, I found her again for a little while in Boston.


It was nice to see her again.

    I love all your different girls.

    That sounds weird, but… you know what I mean.

    I miss her, too! Not cos she’s not still around, but cos I literally NEVER get to see her! ;)

    You are pure beauty, dear friend.

    Is this like Where’s Waldo? I love that game. And I also love that you found that fun, adventurous and simply delightful girl in Boston. I hope she sticks around!

    I’m pretty sure that first photo appeared in the first (or one of the first) blogs of yours I ever read.

    And I’m pretty sure I love it.
