Good to be back

I have to say, I now call England “home” but it’s good to be back in America.  Or to quote West Side Story:

I like to be in America!
O.K. by me in America!
Ev’rything free in America
For a small fee in America!

I like the shores of America!
Comfort is yours in America!
Knobs on the doors in America,
Wall-to-wall floors in America!

It is most certainly the comfort of being back that makes me happy.  I’ve been to Target.  I’ve had some Cheez-its.  I’ve eaten Mexican food (fajitas).  I’ve had a shower instead of a bath (and will have another shortly).  I’m just really enjoying the creature comforts of familiarity, even though travelling is never as nice as being actually in your own home.  This is my curse now, when I’m “home” I’m not in the US and when I’m in the US I’m not home.  But I certainly am happy to be here where I happen to be today.
