Where I’ve Been (MAP + STORIES)

A map tells a story

Not a lie exactly, but not the whole truth.

For 8 months I lived in South Korea.
It occupies only a small portion of the map.

For 5 days I visited Hong Kong — and yet
the map makes me look fluent in Chinese.

Counting countries doesn’t mean much,
When it takes a hundred lifetimes to explore each.

Take on a slower sort of travel.
The world is not a checklist.


This map tells my story, but remember — it’s not the whole truth.
