Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

An Unexpected Trip Home


Tonight I find myself back home in Utah.

I made the journey from Alaska with a heavy heart.

My grandmother, Bever Lee (Bev), passed away on Tuesday.

Tomorrow we say goodbye. For now.

Love you, Grandma.


Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.
