I returned from Spain a few days ago and am still on the high that traveling to a foreign country provides. I am keenly aware of the lessons from travel. Part of the joy of these "recently returned" days is to take the time to emotionally un-pack: from the feelings of getting away from the endless news cycle, to being surrounded by a language I just barely understand and sharing the adventure with a group of creative women. I listened differently, looked more closely and had heightened senses all around. I walk in gratitude to have these opportunities!
