I'm sorry that I haven't written in a while. I guess I've been settling back in after Boston, slowly devouring the Hershey's kisses I brought back to the office (everyone loved them).

It's hard being back - America always fills me with excitement, the power of possibilities. There is a lot to appreciate in McCain, for whom I have a lot of respect, but I am glad Obama won. I am glad that once again we see that America is the place where change can take place, where dreams are made, where, as McCain put it, history is made. I am so proud of America and still hope to make it my home some day.

So being back is hard. I miss my family and Marc. I miss my friends. Most fiercely right now, I miss my mum. I wonder whether we grow out of missing our parents - I think that as time goes by I miss mine more and more, I need them more and more. I love them so so much.

So I haven't written because there hasn't been that much to write I guess and because I haven't been feeling my best. But I am blessed and I had better act like I know it, because it is 100% true.
