Ah. My beloved city! How I have missed thee!!!!
Here where I can freely blow the horn without having people glare at me.
Here where you sweat just for being.
Here where everything takes longer to arrive.
Here where the space is limited and shared.
Here, well, where I belong. Unexplainably I belong. (Yes, I know I may or may not have made that word up.)
I feel so happy to be back! Where it's familiar and crazy and hard and stressful and loved. My routine-loving heart can settle in and be full.
And, let's not forget the princess! In just a few more days I get to hang out with her again. And sing and dance and laugh and discuss any and all subjects.
