Feels So Good

After all the headache of school and moving, it's nice to finally be home. The weather is warm, the sun in bright and the smiles are abundant. I forgot how much I missed this place... family and friends included. It might sound weird, but I sort of like the traffic too (having a car to drive around in again is GREAT).

There are moments when I miss Cambridge. I miss the people (like the concierge, who was part of my daily life), I miss the beauty (of the trees, the flowers, the buildings, Fresh Pond), I miss the sports enthusiasm (GO SOX!) and mostly, I miss my friends. I had a lot of good times out there and I wish there were parts that I could pick up in my hands and set down in Southern California. But, alas, as much as I may think so - I am not God. Just gives me an excuse to go back and visit!

Then I look around and remember how good it is to live here. Miles from both the beach and the mountains. The people are prettier. The air is not humid on a beautiful day (usually). I know this place - and if I get lost, I know how to turn myself around without having to pay tolls. I have my family and friends around me - OFTEN. All the important things came rushing back into my life when I moved home.

I think this past year couldn't have been at a better time. It gave me time to have my OWN adventure. I got to miss people - which is important. I did something that was all mine and I knew I had to learn to swim before the tides washed over me. It was a refreshing feeling; in many ways, I learned a lot about myself this past year.

But it's always good to come home. I'm back, baby!
