I have arrived in LA. I got in around ten in the evening on June 30th. It is now six in the morning on July 1st. It was a long night of talking and catching up with Rick and Marilyn, and it was awesome.
Two years of ESL teaching in China is behind me. Multiple once-in-a-lifetime trips throughout Southeast Asia and across Europe are now in the past. My elegant return to the US has really been a crash landing in Delaware, and this is where I pick of the pieces and try to make something of this life, all the while avoiding the temptation of setting the whole thing on fire and running to the nearest foreign-bound aircraft.
