changing shoes

The world feels vast when you get out of your own bubble, your own city, your own home. It feels even bigger when you're half way across the world in a land where you're the foreigner. Communicating gets harder. Body language becomes more reliant. All of a sudden, you're the one with weird hair, weird accents, weird taste. 

But I don't mind feeling weird. I like the exchange of shoes. Of perspective. How can I ever understand, even a minuscule amount, of those who made a new home out of New York City. Their struggle. The obstacles. 

This is a gift. This vastness.
