Adjusting again to the distance, the time zone inconvenience, the unrequited texting. Plenty of busy to fill the hours and keep the wistful at bay. Cooking and baking, two kinds of Italian lessons, learning a new computer, reconnecting with people on this side, making and sending holiday gifts... But I catch myself sighing deeply. At the same time, sleep comes easily and I don't spend too much time spinning. Amazing how adjusting the frame in my head changes how I see the picture. Knowing we will be leaving is reassuring, even if we don't go. But we most likely will.
