Homesick

I learned something on my vacation yesterday. I am homesick.

Alameda is very nice. It has beaches. It has architecture. But it isn’t Berkeley.

I want to live in Berkeley again. I want hills. I want the jumble of good and bad, tidy and messy. I want good breakfast. I want people who are awake. I want to go home.

It’s uncomfortable, feeling like this. I probably can’t go home. But I realized yesterday how much I want it. Useful, if not pleasant.

I know it's not the same.....but at least you can visit home frequently.

Yep...
...and I do visit often since both my writing group and my church are there. It's more that I miss the feeling of soaking in the energy of the place all the time. (See? You can take the person out of Berkeley, but not the Berkeley language out of the person...) In some ways, what I feel is irritation because I forgot that Berkeley is home long enough to move away. I'm a slow learner, so it's important that I remember the few lessons I learn!
