OK, I know you’re probably getting sick of me by now…bloging every other day…but I am feeling a little homesick at the moment and have about 5 hours to kill in the Kuala Lumpur airport here in Malaysia. I am on my way to Australia and it’s going to be a long journey.
I arrived in Malaysia a bit ago, and it’s really nasty outside. Big black clouds in the sky that look ready to burst. It’s dark even though it’s the middle of the day. This sounds depressing, but it’s actually really comforting. I didn’t realize until now how much I have missed winter this year. It’s pretty much been hot and humid everywhere I have been…and even those places where it did rain, it never felt like winter. So anyway, I went and did something I haven’t done in over 3 years…I walked into Starbucks and ordered a Veinte Carmel Macchiato. I don’t know what made me do it…but something about the weather, being a little homesick, and just wanting to feel like I was at home. Sitting here drinking this coffee, looking out the window at the dark sky I can almost pretend I am at home. I can picture Marie all bundled up in her winter clothes running through the rain with her latte in her hand, I can picture Greg with his overcoat and OJ gloves on, I can pretend Tiffany is giving us the run down on next weeks marketing events…and I can picture Susan walking into our workshop a little late talking about the wreck she was almost in with her steaming coffee in her hand…Kevin thinking the more coffee he drinks the less red his eyes will be…Nate smoking a cig with his first cup in the morning…Mom walking back from the Pannican while Rudy barks at everything that moves.
It’s a good feeling, sitting here knowing that I have all these people back home…friends, family…
Anyway, just thought I’d tell you all I miss you, even though I’ll probably forget all about this crap once I get to the beaches of east coast Oz! Just kidding…kinda! ;-)
Talk to you soon,
