Excerpts From Japan


By Antonina Testaverde / Contributor

It wasn’t just about travel.  

It was friendship, hardship, growth. 

 It was living outside of comfort in order to define what comfort was.  

A way to break free from the monotony and move closer to some kind of realization.  

And it could not be grasped, no matter how I tried.  

It was evolution: without guidance.   

A route: without a compass.  

It was pulling the weeds in order to let the wildflowers grow as they may.  

Haphazard, Beautiful: 


Without Apology.
