Re-entry. LONDON to ALBUQUERQUE

20160801_141014_001

I took this extra day off to deal with re-entry into the real life of Albuquerque and a dusty apartment and a job and the sun. I am trying…or will be right after a nap. Teresa flew on to San Diego early this am and I’m gazing at the shambles of open suitcases, spent water bottles, and accumulated mail.

Teresa and I returned last night from four weeks of perfect travel time—almost equally divided between adventure, family and a great world city. There’s more to say about each—to which I’ve only alluded previously in these Time and Place posts—specifically about the Greenlandic testing of one’s physical stamina against the reality of ageing; the almost existential (to be explained later) importance to me of my Norwegian cousins/family; and last but certainly not least, the awe and excitement and ‘freedom’ one is aware of when visiting one of the world’s relatively few historically and contemporaneously great cities—London. I intend to write thoughtfully and articulately about all of that over the next few days. Perhaps?

But right now…I’m dealing with re-entry like this:

Cheers…

LAST MORNING ON OUR LONDON TERRACE.

BACK HOME. TOAD MISSED ME.
