Traveler Log: Being here, seems like a time wrap. “I have only been here six months” but in comparison to my time left, I only have a year and 9 months to go. Time is moving fast in a slow continuum. It doesn’t help that my friends keep leaving. My heart hurts, because another volunteer left. It seems selfish, but I can only think of how much I will miss him. The absence is felt in my small circle of friends. I find myself at odds with volunteers, weirder than most and uninterested in the activities they enjoy. This volunteer understood me and was a support in my small network. His absence will be missed. I can’t help feel resentment at the way he left as well. It wasn’t voluntarily. No matter, God moves in mysterious ways. Every setback is a setup for greatness. You just have to open yourself to it.
