Preparing

I have prepared for a lot of things in my life
20 homes in 28 years
Moving to a country across the globe
Teaching in different worlds
Learning new languages
Going through tests - academic, cultural, emotional
But this is a new type of preparation
Billy will keep me company
As we prepare for this thrilling adventure
I'm practicing conversational Dutch, Catalan, French,  German,  Norwegian, my best Hermione Granger impersonation, and the toughest - Icelandic
I'm leaning into discomfort
Of unlearning old ways
And experiencing this experience
Not preventing it
And doing my best
Preparing for it.
