Transmission

Transmission

All right everybody, this is Galen transmitting to the other side of the world. I only have a few words to say today. First, if you dig a whole, you won’t find yourself in China, but if you dig down at about 80 degrees you might just find me. Second and lastly, all I have to say is, this is the most absolutely indescribable, incredible, and life changing experience of my life. I’ve lived on this earth for 18 years, almost 19 now, and I have changed from two absolutely different personalities, in fact many more than two. I have evolved, I have always been changing, but never before have I been able to feel those changes on a day-to-day basis. It’s like I’m watching a time-lapse of my hair growing, except its me growing and learning each and everyday. It is a useless attempt to find the words to describe it; it is the most unbelievable experience I could possibly imagine. And absolutely everything about it is amazing, including the endless tests and trials that I face everyday, including the pain and homesickness, it is all simply absolute beauty. The small things, the pangs of specific things, things that I am used to at home, friends and family, things that seemed absolutely insignificant and unmemorable at the time, are now filled with pain and longing. However, it’s a little like the runners high, and even that pain is so indescribably incredible. I love it, I can’t wait to come home, but I love it. This is life changing; this is a hallmark that will always play a significant part of my life, for the rest of my life.

Textbooks, globes and atlas’, are powerless at the hands of reality. I thank God for this opportunity, and for the tests that give me strength. Once again, this is Galen from the other side of the earth, ending transmission.
