Listening to Ku’u Home ‘o Kahalu’u and reading emails from home. Such a pretty song. â€œLast night I dreamt that I was returning, and my heart called out to you.â€ You should listen to it. It is about returning to a place/person after a long time, after you/they/it may/probably/inevitably has changed. That it is just not the same. â€œAnd I will greet you as I find you, with a sharing of a new song.â€
And emails that make me wish I could talk to the people face to face. To give them a hug, slap them playfully, or just watch their faces while they talk. Donâ€™t get me wrong, email is great. It gives you time to think of how you want to say something. It gives you the chance to pick the right word, the one that gets your meaning across the best.
Anyway, today was normal. In fact, there was a time while I was sitting down, inside a bright, clean, new restaurant, listening to Hawaiian music and hearing English spoken, that I had to remind myself that I was halfway around the world in China. But I am and I should be getting to bed. It is rather late and I am tired.
PS. But I am so small, I can barely see, how can this great love be inside of me? Look in your eyes, they are so small but they see incredible things.
breakfast was fun today. I missed people that were not there, but Carly came so that was cool. I really hope you are having fun in China!
mm… Hawaii music. very very nostalgic. I agree.
See food. I’ve been thinking that ever since you’ve had that picture, so I just had to say it outloud.
Or….in a comment that is.
Hey, I never thought I would say this but I actully miss you too. I hope you have a good trip home!
i don’t know about you, but when i am in an unfamiliar place i like it and then i get homesick (or peoplesick) and then when it is time to leave, i don’t want to go. ironic, huh? i hope your last few days in china are a blessing! still praying for you!
