I drafted a letter to my employer, requesting a leave of absence, a leave to explore the world for one year.

No guarantees, no promise of a job upon my return, nothing.

But then again, Portland may not be my residence of return. Emotions lofting in the air-  an ocean breeze for a one-way ticket to Casablanca, a week in Madrid with Tess; Turbulent clouds contemplating which countries in Africa are safe, can I get a visa for Iran in Turkey, do I have enough money saved?

Darlene’s leave of absence approved- last day of work July 31st, 2009.

Celebratory bottle, compliments of the boy, Châteauneuf-du-Pape June 16th, 2009.
