Adjusting to Home

Sorry for being aloof right after I said I’m back. To be clear, I’m back in the Unites States, not back in my apartment in Lebanon. I feel a small amount of culture shock and a major amount of dislocation. This morning it took me a full thirty seconds to figure out which country I woke up in. I love traveling, but I’ve been doing far too much of it lately.
Two days after I arrived home in Oregon I flew to Southern California to visit my father-in-law after the doctors cracked open his chest and did major surgery on his heart. I’m finally back in my house where I intend to stay put for a while and get back to the business of writing. Just give me a minute (er, half a day actually) to get myself together.
