it’s early morning and the mists are still clinging to the green-gray spines jutting out of the turquoise waters as we glide through the quiet channels of ha long bay. the heat of the sun is beginning to dissipate the haze of clouds and warm the jagged spires of dragon scale legend. birds dance on the breeze overhead.

such beauty exists in this world as my eyes would not have believed, and it restores me, heals the damage of neglect like a balm, smoothes the thin patches and fills up the careworn gaps of my soul. it is everything i have needed and more than i could have asked for.
