My last day in Houston. Good byes have never really been my thing, especially when it comes to people, places and experiences I have grown to love.

I tried to be mindful of my spending this journey and not purchase souvenirs, but if I had found an I heart Houston t-shirt I would have had to purchase it.

This city has been good to me.

Today I was in a store and my friend said, “Hey, aren’t these the Acholi beads you wear?”

There they were, familiar faces and designs that remind me of hope, newness, strength and resurrection.

Good stuff and a good visual word to send me on my way.

See you later Houston.
