farewell, maroc



My time in Morocco is coming to an end, and I'll be off to a new country with a new job, and hopefully, a renewed sense of self. Though I grew to love Morocco deeply, the fours years spent here was not easy— my work life ate away at everything. Yes, motherhood has changed the game for me in terms of how I spend my time, but the most exhausting aspect of my life here has always been tied to my job. I believe that this move will be a positive change for all three of us, and that I will finally get back to doing the things that I love— the things that make me, me: drawing, painting, reading, exploring, and writing here.

A heartfelt shukran to Morocco, and to Rabat especially. There is so much that I will miss and treasure. I will be back one day, inshallah.

I'm always glad to see updates from you even as they've grown further apart. I believe your child and my child are about the same age and so I just assumed that parenthood made things harder/slower. I'm sorry to hear that your job has been stressful, but I'm glad you're on to new things. Thank you for your updates! I hope the future is bright.
