Ends are not bad things

Friends, this will be the final post of what has been a truly amazing journey.
I have been home for a week now and over that time I have been trying to figure out the best way to tie all of this up and I believe I would like to do so by saying thank you.
If you were someone that I was lucky enough to meet along the trip, thank you for sharing a piece of your life with me.
If you are one of my friends from back home who has been reading along each week, thank you for encouraging me to go and for the open arms upon my return.
If you are my family, thank you for your love and support through what has been a very difficult year for each of us.
After nine countries, seventeen cities and over 17,745 miles traveled, I found exactly what I was looking for.
For the first time in more than a year, I feel at peace. Thoughts of my father are where they should be and what comes next for me in life is clear.
I couldn't be more excited about the next chapter.
“Ends are not bad things, they just mean that something else is about to begin. And there are many things that don't really end, anyway, they just begin again in a new way. Ends are not bad and many ends aren't really an ending; some things are never-ending.”

I love you, Pops. Thank you for all the moments we had. My love for you is never ending.
