Now that I’ve been away from home, some of the things I miss are being able to wake up and open my door and see the sunrise and drink coffee with my birth giver. I miss seeing my bulldogs faces. I also miss my younger brother whose birthday I had to miss.
One of things that makes it hard to be away from home is not being able to see my family members faces and voices. One thing that is great about being away from home is being able to experience new things and meet new people that can become great friends later on.
Today was an adventure to listen to other elders stories and to be welcomed on their territories, and being able to listen and share the traditional songs and dances at Mount. Baldy. Also cooking in the morning with my mentor’s group and going through the day with laughter and good vibes.
