I put on my running shoes and head out for a long run. The sun is rising in the distance and the cows grazing as I keep going mile after mile.
During my three-month temporary hiatus from reality, the only consistent thing has been running. I’m constantly hoping that during a long run that there would be this aha moment or a clairvoyant telling me what my future holds. Here I am still waiting.
After being back home in Sri Lanka for a month now, I’ve been tempted to move back. There is my family and friends and job offers, including one in a newspaper making it hard to decide.
However, every time I step outside and deal with the insane traffic, crowds and the inability to find decent coffee, I change my mind and look forward to going back to US.
Despite not having found the answer as yet, I keep hoping that one day soon, as I continue to run past the flower vendors, the couples taking pictures of their special day and the beautiful scenery, that I will find the right answer to the questions in my mind.
Here are some pictures I captured during a 6 mile run.
