the holiday's over...but I still have two weeks of summer left!
11.08.2009 - 11.08.2009 27 °C
Since returning to Danville, I've found that, apart from the vast quantity of art my parents have acquired over the past year, everything is pretty much the same. Even reconnecting to my old friends and family has felt easy and normal, as if we're simply picking up where we left off a year ago.
Walking around Danville, I've started to notice a number of things I hadn't before: the number of trees abound, the friendliness of everyone from shopkeepers to baristas to passerby, the cleanliness of the streets (and the number of trash cans! Sydney seems to have maybe two in the whole city) and just how good that sun feels when I'm reading on a lounge chair in my backyard.
I've spent the past week catching up with as many people as I can at family parties, lunch dates, nightly hang outs, going to the beach, shopping excursions, and over the occasional beer at Pete's Brass Rail (I am in the Connoisseurs 100 Club, but I have about 94 to go!), and even though I miss everyone back in Sydney a lot, it's hard not to enjoy this.
It's good to be home.
