two weeks pass...

I blink and I take a breath, just one it seems, and 2 weeks have passed by...

and suddenly, we are almost finished with classes;
and suddenly, we are just a week away from leaving this place that has been home for the last 8 months;
and suddenly, that which seemed so far away is right in front of us.

(insert deep breath.)

in those two weeks I took four exams,
and tried to understand the subjunctive tense,
and the pronoun se,
and how to say it all in a tongue that is not yet truly my own.

and in those two weeks,
I visited a coffee operation,
and shared worship with likeminded believers in a hot & dry yet very sweet place,
and searched for a home on the internet.

and in two more weeks,
is it possible?,
we will be somewhere entirely different,
new and yet home again?
