You Can’t Go Home Again

August 5, 2009

So I’m going back to Minnesota/Wisconsin tonight for an 11 day jaunt.   I’m in a big rush, but I wanted to say what a relief it is to be able to say that it still feels like home even though I haven’t lived there in ten years.  I plan to see friends, go to a Twins game, drink beer, walk on the shores of Lake Superior, hopefully go camping, and just generally relax and enjoy being around the people I care about and being in a place that always welcomes me back.  And when I say place, that’s exactly what I mean.  Of course, my friends are happy to see me (and I, them), but I think Minnesota and Wisconsin are too.  It always feels that way.

I’m sure I’ll be adding to this post when I get back.


I made it to Minnesota, even through the red-eye, the ten minutes of turbulence, and sitting behind the one person who wanted their reading light on at 2am.  The red-eye wasn’t too bad, but there were a lot more people on it than I expected, and it seemed like the loudest gate-crowd I’d ever experienced.  The turbulence was short, but rough.  I realize planes don’t actually fall from the sky because of turbulence at 35000 feet, but don’t think Lost didn’t enter my mind about a thousand times in those ten minutes  (that show would’ve been a lot different if they’d crashed on the shores of Mille Lacs Lake).  I have nothing more to say about the reading light.

It’s a beautiful day here.  It even smells like Minnesota (if you’re wondering, Minnesota smells like a combination of 10,000 lakes, freshly cut grass, road construction, and Marge Gunderson’s accent).

For me, finding a niche has been like trying to choose a favorite among my own children. There are so many things I love to do, but one I'm passionate about and that's writing.
