It has been one year ago that I first visited Guam. As I like to say, I am Chamorro by marriage and last year I had the honor and privilege of visiting Guahan for the first time.
It is hard for me to put into words how much I have fallen in love with the island and its people.
Tomorrow we will begin the long journey back to what I have affectionately referred to as "Home".
True, I am not Chamorro by birth but I feel as sense of belonging to this beautiful place and once again I have the honor and privilege of going back.
Don't get me wrong, the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico will always be where I am from and as contradictory as it sounds, home for me too but Guahan is another very special place that has taken a firm hold of my heart. This sense of wonder I guess is a part of what I attempt to convey and share here.
