Home, I greatly look forward to being there.
This trip to California has been great. The one thing I really wanted to do while I was here was to see something new. I got to do that (check out the photos on the photography page). And even though my time spent here has been enjoyable, from early on in the trip I had a desire to be back home. The truth is, I missed it.
Being away has really made me appreciate the things and people I'm blessed to have everyday of my life. If only being apart from them for seven days makes me feel this way then I must have something really special. And although being away and out of my regular routine hasn't been the most pleasant experience, I did find something here that I haven't had in quite some time, musical inspiration.
While in California, 3000 miles from home, I managed to find the inspiration to compose two new pieces of music (more on those later). I don't know why but there was something about being far from home that pushed me to write.
I'm glad I "got away" for a week but I'm also glad that I'll be back home shortly. I look forward to catching up with people, sleeping in my own bed, and working on some new music.
I really did miss a lot of things.
