today i moved back into residence for a week.
i love this place - but it doesn't feel the same right now.
maybe it's the lack of sarah, or trevor or mike - you know? that support system? that calm place? i feel like a stranger in the building that was home only two weeks ago.
but, i'm meeting new wonderful people.
alison is a sweetheart, she is the other don for my floor, because I will be back at L'Arche in the fall. she helped me prepare for my session and she just seem fun.
and andrew is wild. i swear i'm always laughing when he's around, and he was friends with mike in the fall term, so i have that connection, you know?
jason has a heart wrenching story. he exudes strength and wisdom, and even though he might be frail, he makes me feel safe.
caitlyn is genuine and lovely. i can't exactly describe her, but i would want to say she's bright. she has a magnetic quality that makes you feel good when she's in the room.
it's just another page. another journey.
i'm happy. i'm strong. and although i'm out of my comfort zone - i can make the best of this.
who knows - someone here might be my new safe.
