In exactly one week from now if all goes according to plan I should be wandering around aimlessly somewhere in California at or around this time.
Well not precisely.
If you take the nine hour difference into account and the eleven hour long flight, then I will still be sitting in the KLM flying machine in one week's time.
Perhaps in my anticipation I am trying to speed up the time a little.
Actually, it should be alot of fun wandering around in the area I grew up and left more than twenty years ago.
There's something about the past and my sentimental tendencies that make such an upcoming sojourn worthwhile and invigorating.
I cannot wait. Not only to see my mother, the relatives and friends, but also as a pure form of fun and relaxation.
So that when I do return after the two weeks I will be reinvigorated with energy, new insights, and a fresh mind to go onwards and upwards.
