Lack of Updates = Life Has Been Grey

My backpack has long been put away, my travel essentials stored, my meager pile of clothes have been long washed and kept. Life on the road has been over for a while. A year has passed since I left for New Zealand and 6 months since I returned home. Yet I thought it is still…
