Home, away from home

I’m trying to get back in the groove of things as I have just been back home in Japan for a few days. The cold that was awaiting me does nothing to cure my poor jet-lagged brain, but I suspect that the beautiful sun shining today is going to help a bit !

I have been living in Japan for more than 10 years now, and I always get a bittersweet feeling when leaving my home country to return to my life over here. I’m trying to manage this strange mood as gracefully and peacefully as possible, but the jumble of emotions is a bit tricky to manage. It’s like I’m back, but a little part of me is still over there and doesn’t really want to go back…I guess a lot of people living abroad (or just far away from their family and friends) can relate…
So for now, I’m unpacking and moving things around as I settle again in my Japanese space. And breathing in the local air. To re-acclimate.

I hope you’re all having a fantastic beginning of 2011…!
