I was aware of the fact that I was married now, even though the actual day that made it official still seemed like a dream. And we were on our honeymoon in Thailand.
I felt insignificant amidst its beauty and realized this as our small rental scooter puttered quickly but cautiously along the roads of this thriving land. As the scooter crept up the hill we played peek-a-boo with ocean scenery that stirred my soul.
What I understood at that moment was that your eyes always look towards what you need to see. I needed to see the details of this unfamiliar place so that they could awaken within me a love for it. This glimpse made me realize that I needed to take the love emanating from the land while leaving love as I traveled around it. This would be the way we would grow on this trip.
