There was a sense of urgency in the air spiked with mixed feelings of dread and euphoria. We found comfort in the darkness of night but the energy we shared was intense and inspiring. Ultimately, our hangover angst was soothed by the sunrise that illuminated our gloriously inebriated journey back home."
