The Joys of Being Back
The lovely humidity, that makes my skin so perfectly moisturized
seeing my awesome volunteer friends that I missed so much
sleeping in my own bed
having my kitten lounge on my chest, purring so deeply I can feel the vibrations in my sternum
having little kids’ faces light up when I was and smile at them (there’s something to be said for being so obviously different - a certain celebrity/monster status)
receiving happy shouts of greeting as I walk down the street
my landlord’s sister bringing me a plate of food just when I was contemplating gathering the energy to go searching for ingredients
the satisfaction of seeing my cat take on a spider as big as my hand – and winning!
the peace and quiet and solitude
having a new ipod where i can choose the track I listen to!
remembering French and Ewe and making myself understood
