home at last

Date June 30, 2008

It’s Monday. Five days since my last post. Craziness.

I rarely ever go a day without writing when I’m in Manizales. Life is slow and I don’t have a cell phone that rings. There’s wifi in my apartment and high speed internet at school.

But I’m in Mississippi today. There’s no internet at my parents’ house and no car for me to drive. There are one thousand people that I want to see and one thousand biscuits that I want to eat. There’s a grandmother to visit and gardens to weed and thick, Southern air to breathe. And I am here.

It was a long, emotional trip, but I am here. I am sleeping in that house on a hill in Nowhere, MS.

    I’m so glad you are here and that I got a surprise visit. Even if it was only a few minutes! Can’t wait until we all get together.

    I am glad you are home too and I am also glad you have a post for me to read. I have been missing it.
