Home for Christmas

After getting up at 3.15 AM and catching a 6.30 flight, a stressful layover in Phoenix where we had 10 minutes to sprint across the terminal to catch the plane, and 6 hours in the air, we touched down in Philadelphia. Cold Philadelphia. And now we're back here.

It's great to see people again, the familiar places. But it's also difficult to be "home" and yet not have a home anywhere. Our house that we love rented to strangers... But these things make up life, so you have to deal with them.

It's strange to live in this netherworld, that when you talk about home you have to explain where exactly you mean. You mean home in California? Or the stone house? It's like parts of you are left in different places, never put back together easily.

It's complicated.

Harry Poter is Witchcraft! God hates Dumbledore because of his Gayness!

The fact that dumbledore is gay doesn't bother me at all. The fact that adults read an 800 page fantasy book and then talk about it terrifies me.
