It has been soooo long. Where have I been for the last six months?!? I had a revelation while staring at a Starbucks coffee cup a while ago; life just passes. If it is tough now, it passes; if the day is exquisite in its loveliness, it passes too. Six months.
I don't think I will ever get over the shock of coming home... we are forever foreigners now. It isn't just a culture change. It is the realization that what we have experienced has changed our shape and there is no snapping back into the picture seamlessly. Instead, the landscape that fits our present paradigm hovers above the earth, and every once in a while I connect eyes with someone over the crowd and my heart says "a-ha, you know".
So... where are we going?
