Mind half here and half there, my heart slowly breaking at the thought of leaving while yearning for home all at the same time. Awash in a stew of conflicting emotions. Relief, joy, longing, sorrow, and excitement. I will miss the colors of the sky clashing with the land and the sea here, the vastness as I look in any direction, the lonesome roadways, the calm. A strange land, both old and new, tropical and cold. A clashing. A contradiction. Isolated from the cares of much of the rest of this world, cut off, protected by wind and wave from all sides. A haven. A place that had been my home for two months now. A place I will leave behind in 48 hours.
