Just like Candy

20 Dec

Okay, here goes. For the last three(ish) days I’ve been trying to figure out how I feel about being home, but the truth is I just don’t feel anything yet.

It’s kind of like that feeling when someone hands you a candy you used to love as a child. Your eyes light up as you glimpse the familiar wrapping. It looks just as you remember. But then as you pop it into your mouth, you realise your tastes have changed, maybe matured a little, and as you take those first few licks you’re not sure what to think. After sufficient time in your mouth, you will of course render a verdict, but in the meantime you’re reserving judgement. Well, that’s kind of how I feel. After one year and four months away from this place, and living in England and travelling all through Europe, I have a bit of a different perspective on the country I love. So, for now, I’m holding out judgement.

On another note – no matter what anyone says about Canada – it is much warmer EVERYWHERE than it is in England!
