Ending with a Semicolon

Hi F&F,

I am home.

Putting the period at the end of that opening sentence was a
little sad.

Traveling across country was great.  It afforded me the opportunity to see America
and to see myself more completely and in a new way.  I liked what I saw; the beauty marks and the warts.

I want the excitement of exploration and the feeling of freedom
and fearlessness to continue. So, while it may be grammatically correct to put
a period at the end of that opening sentence; I am choosing to be incorrect. I’m
ending it with a semicolon. It is the punctuation mark that is all about the
pause and the anticipation/introduction of the next passage. That’s what being home feels like to me.

I am home;
