But sad to leave behind a unique environment and a situation or way of life radically pure and away from the habits of our society. Sadness because all the excitement and energy put into a project, now are only memories and stops being a motor for moving towards a goal, which now is already achieved.
One of the great efforts that we humans always should do, is exploiting and living the present moment. This does not means that we do not have to remember with love and desire to learn the past, nor fail to plan and work for the future, but always being very present and being very conscious in real time we are living. Too often occur that when we are in a site (for example in normal life), we want to be in another (ex: doing an adventure like the Antarctic), whereas when we are in the other (but living a hard time but very intense time in the adventure, for example), we just want to return to the previous location (home, or to normal life). Believe me when I insist that developing this skill should be a great challenge for us all.
Anyway, yesterday when I connected my Blackberry (I'm not in iPhone yet, sorry), I got the feeling of being plugged back to 'Matrix'. But I am naturally very excited to go back home, and not only to reconnect with family and friends, but also to enjoy the best of my normal life, hoping to have evolved a bit more as a person and thus see the two worlds or two spaces can coexist and merge into oneself to the end, try to be happy whatever the situation or the time you are living.
One of the things that I will unavoidably miss, is your contact and constant energy, after being sharing the experience of this Antarctic adventure for so long time. I hope that either through this website, or through some other means, we can continue connected in some way.
Meanwhile, I'll throw myself to the more radical 'greed', and I think swell to eat a lot of everything, though I die of stomach pain ... I have to recover the 15kg. I've lost, and incidentally make an obsession that I constantly had during long hours of walking alone during the voyage: Eat, eat and eat! I advise friends and relatives to not even think about inviting me to lunch or dinner at a restaurant for a while, if you do not want to risk ruining.
