I'm back....

Just to let everyone know.... I'm back.

I'm not sure how to feel about it yet. I'm still rather numb, not to mention tired! I've had the longest Sunday of my life. (I left Thailand on Sunday and arrived here on Sunday, flying backward in time). Kind of Asimovesque but it really does work that way. So many things happened. So many extraordinary things, some of which I can talk about and some I can't.

Mostly, it helped so much to get some of my perspective back. It does take reinforcement and as much as we all like to believe we are totally independent and can create whatever we want on our own, it's simply not true. I do feel reconnected and it is because I went there and hung out with other people like me. Amazing, that! People like me.

In order to get back on track, I took Ambien during the flight so I slept but am still a bit weary, not quite up to leaving comment crumbs around yet. I'm looking forward to doing that tomorrow. (If you don't want comments on previous posts, please leave me a comment and let me know. Then I'll just read.)

I can't wait to hear all about your visit to Thailand. It sounds exhausting, but also, life defining.

Welcome back! I can imagine that right now it's just your body, in a few days it will be your mind, too, but your soul never will ...

Looking forward to read about your experience.

welcome back. I lived on guam when I was little and our flight back to the states was similar. You leave on sunday and arrive on a sunday, even though you pass through a whole day of flying.

Welcome back, Chani. I am really looking forward to reading about your time in Thailand. I have been offline for the past week and am trying to catch up on reading posts, but I wanted to let you know that if you decide to make your blog a private community, I would still like to be a part of it.

Welcome back.

I am just getting caught up on reading and writing so I just now got to read your last few posts. The massage sounds incredible.

I look forward to reading more about your trip. If you have any photos, please consider posting them. It may be the only way I get to visit Thailand.

Welcome back! I hope your re-entry here goes as smoothly as it can.

Welcome home. Sort of home. Ambien sleep is not the full range of sleep stages and therefore not that restful or refreshing.

the psycho therapist said...

Yeah, I hope your heart finds something at home that welcomes it back and gives it comfort, what "hele" said.

Onna counna "home comings" are not always.

gumdropsandbubblethoughts said...

Glad that you had a wonderful vacation. Welcome back!

Hugs and blessings,
