The Grand Canyon made me cry. I know it’s cliche, but it was something more than just the beauty of it. Standing there reminded me of the time I first landed in Italy when I went to live there during college. I got off the plane in Pisa and went straight to the leaning tower. I climbed the tower on the last tour of the day with a couple of German dudes and when I got to the top, I looked out at the sun setting over the Italian town and I couldn’t help but cry a little bit. I had always wanted to live in Italy and I had actually made it happen. I remember feeling brave and scared all at once. I had that same feeling today at the canyon. Like I made this thing happen, but I have no idea what’s coming next.
