Hello, I must be going … home

Last week in the USA then.

As I sit and type this, I realise that at this time next week I’ll be on a plane. First I go north a bit to Philadelphia, and then east quite a bit more to London. It’s time … The Prodigal Son returns to the City of Londinium next Sunday, and if I’m completely honest I can’t wait to get back and crack on with things.

The 2nd of May 2006 will be one of those dates emblazoned onto my cerebrum, remembered in the same way that other people remember dates that are important to them. As that was the date when I first arrived here, only for me to return – just over three and half years later – back to there.

So I’m signing off my American experience with a whole bunch of things that I’ve been saving up for a while, that I knew I would blog about only when it came to my last few days here in this fascinating country. And these are now, those last few days.

A blog post a day, right up until I leave next weekend.

    “Hello I must be going”, is of course the title of a Phil Collins album. Please don’t tell anyone that I remember the titles of Phil Collins albums.

    I cannot believe it’s true.

    You’ve come so very far, O’ highly esteemed & beloved Englishman! Now you’re going further. Poetic, triumphant & tragic, all in one. ahhh, I love these kind of endings, that are actually a beginning!

    It has been lovely to be “with” you thus far.
    Thank you

    Moving is always hard, even when you move back “home”. Good luck as its especially hard when you move back home! You expect to fit right in but things are just a little different from when you left! You have been warned!

    I can’t wait for a series of posts that go something like

    “I’ve been home x weeks and this week I found these things weird about being back…”

    This epic is brilliant Geoff

    Yes things have definitely changed, I don’t know about in London, that might still be buzzing, but out here in the suburbs everyone seems to be unemployed, and raking over the ‘reduced items’ in the supermarket. There is a sort of wartime camaraderie about being hard-up, swopping and Freecycling, using leftovers that sort of thing. (Starts singing it’s a long way to Tipperary): )
