Wow, Hawaii to London is a long way. I love it but I had forgotten exactly how cold, wet and big it is. The small bright, breezy convenience of Hawaii and the sprawling, beachy cup cake colors of Los Angeles feel far away. But it is lovely to be back in the country where I lived for so long and to see my dear, dear friends.
Today was the first day that clicked into place. You know the day where you suddenly collect yourself into one time zone, one city, one life? Things make sense and you look up and expect to be where you are? It feels much better. Now, I can breathe and get started on the mountain of research I have to do for the Second Book. Yikes... More tomorrow!
