i've been busy just making my house (er, trailer) into a home
and hanging out with my dog.
not to mention going to the beach, seeing family and friends, working, unpacking, and running errands. at the store, the selection of pasta sauces is overwhelming. not to mention the variety of cereals, dishsoaps, and paper towels. i remember, now, why i never made pasta sauce from scratch before living in denmark. it's a shame.

our avocados are to die for. in fact, i just might have gone to heaven. each one perfectly ripe and glowing green around the bulbous pit inside. and not only the avocados, but the heirloom tomatoes, the local apricots, and the blueberries straight from the farm. i am grateful for these things.
i missed farmers' market.
i've only been surfing once in the week i've been back. the surf's been really shitty with an offshore wind blowing and virtually no waves. this is the worst time of year. but it's also the best time. it's summer at long last. i'm willing to wait through the fog and the afternoon chill breezes for the santa anas and indian summer. when i'm in the water, all is in equilibrium.
denmark doesn't feel so far away.
it's only a fourteen-hour flight, even if the trip demands twenty-four hours of travel. it's close to me in my mind. i already miss hearing and speaking danish constantly. it's a surprise when everyone on the street knows what i'm saying when i'm speaking english. i don't have any verbal privacy. i miss my friends, too... but i'm still doing spontaneous yoga all the time.
