Into the Sea

I am in a Middle East on the cusp of change.

Two days ago, women in Saudi Arabia were allowed to drive for the first time. Here in Dubai, the country is trying to find ways to allow freelancers in and businesses to stay. Visas are being offered, extended, changed.

Visas are often on my mind these days. I’ve resigned from my full-time role at the magazines. While I’m still handling them, I’ve stepped back from my dream job. Now it’s all licenses, legalities, setting myself up as a professional content creator in a city that is still very much defining what it means to create.

It’s a terrifying shift, a painful one, but one that in a breath feels completely right.

And write.

I am here in the Middle East, on the cusp of a change.
