My trip to the States, to California seems to be fading.
Oh, Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been back in Denmark for these many months since last September, but in the terms of blogging, the end is coming nearer all the time.
A photo here, a map there, I’ve taken my time, to show you around my Home State, with all of those memories along the way. It’s funny. I had imagined what I finally could be/would be seeing when I again was in Southern California, but when I was there…..time got away from me.
Enough words for now, as I would imagine a Travel Blog’s Greatest Asset is its photos? Right?
Just as much as so many things seem different, they are really the same. We live, we exist, we work, we buy. The same kind of things, that everyone else does, just in their own personal places/spaces.
Bathroom faucets, and No-Bear Dumpsters are perhaps not the usual touristy things that others would have photographed, but then I am not just everybody.
Imagine, I’ve invited you to dinner at my niece’s house. Squash Soup is on the menu, and the places are set, just waiting for the guests to arrive. I won’t offer you the choice of speaking in your Native Language, as it is only English spoken here!
There are magnets on the refrigerator with drawings and such. Don’t forget to visit the girl’s bedroom and the boy’s bedroom. They are as different at boys and girls are, but unique in their own ways.
The squash soup has left a warm feeling in my stomach, and the time has come to watch some TV. The 100 degree temperatures of the day, have cooled off thanks to the air condition, and the coolness of my family and their ways.
Watch a Star Trek Movie, play Minecraft on the iPad, look at our Smart Phones and imagine that we are Californians, one and all.
My Danish Dog is still in Denmark, as is my wife and daughter. My work is waiting for me to return again, probably wondering if I’ve forgotten how to speak Danish?
The dishes have been washed and put away, and the kids are fighting the urge to yawn.
My trip is still fading, but right now seems like forever, and I never left Placerville, for other more foreign places on the planet.
What about the Squash Soup, you might be asking? It was yellow, and still resides in my memory…..
just back in Denmark, I suppose…
