6 months of spanish

Dropped my friend off at the airport today after our trip to Baja, she’s off the Central America for 6 months to learn Spanish and to work with textiles. Can’t wait follow along with her journeys. She’s really an incredible human being and a better friend now more than ever.
A month in a van with someone oughtta each you something. For me this was a lesson in communication. If you know me well enough, you learn that I’m not easy to be around after some time together. Friendships and relationships alike have taken the blunt end of my inability to voice what’s in my mind. I seem to learn time and time again through the patience and strength of friends like Jalene that learning this lesson isn’t enough, it’s practicing it that matters most.
So in honour of all of our friends who take the time to help us learn how to be human with each other, I’m sharing this lesson as a reminder for myself to practice communication, or as my friend worded it, “communication with compassion”.
