The Love Shack Lives On....

The love shack was created by a community of friends in Tokyo during the summer and early fall of 2002. It was a truly beautiful place to be. A few strangers coming together to support each other in the ups and downs of life and travel abroad. Complete with a little dog named Ty-Ty, we were a force to be reckoned with. In the three and a half years since that time, I have reminisced with warmth for that time in my life, when the major decision were left to the Good Man Upstairs and the little decisions we concerned ourselves with were: ketchup or mustard on our burgers?, red or white wine?, and how many pillows do we need to comfortably watch a movie piled on our friends in the living room?

The first person awake started breakfast, the last one in at night got the couch. Problems were solved with love, we cried on each other's shoulders and laughed until we were crying again.

The love shackers have continued to travel and add to the troop. A text message while I'm at my desk studying for my finals took me a few thousand miles away, next to T, packing her suitcase and picking up her ticket to head back to the Shack. And I had to take a minute to realize that the photos on my wall aren't of a time and friends gone but of love that is still here with me everyday just as I am with them.

Love really does conquer all......and when you can't go home, you're always welcome at the Love Shack.
