1000 Days of Homeless Wanderings
Sárospatak, Hungary

We're commemorative creatures. Some of us remember loved ones past with grave markers, and others remember former lovers with little boxes of trinkets under our beds. Anniversaries of first kisses, weddings, births, and wars are commonplace the world over.

So, I suppose then it's not abnormal for me to notice and extra digit in my (unmonitored) days travel tally, and to celebrate it like your favorite vehicle's odometer rolling over to some interesting figure.

Today I reflect on how the experiences of a single day can forever change your life, and awe in amazement at how 24 quick hours, compounded a thousand times over, can find you on the other side of the world with a family of your own and a bounty of stories and lessons learned so big it would take another thousand just to tell them.

Anything is possible. We all start at day one.
