sistersXcanada – Day 6 – Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan

But this didn’t feel like alienation, nor was it loneliness. Everyone who cared enough knew where I was (somewhere in Canada!). I didn’t have any obligations I was avoiding, I didn’t need to know what was happening at my work or anywhere else. I could just exist, completely unknown, in my tiny tent under the unreachable stars, staring into the fire and thinking about what it meant to be small, what it meant to be me, what it meant to be.
