homesick

March 5, 2009

I have been feeling painfully homesick for san diego lately. I have a knot in my stomach that I cannot quell, though my obsessive search through flickr picture sets and google earth voyages exploring my old stomping grounds certainly isn’t helping to soothe the ache of longing. I want to smell the air, heavy with the fragrance of saltwater and eucalyptus. I want to wake up to foggy spring mornings that dampen your skin and dampen the sound of your surroundings as you move through a temporarily invisible world. I miss seeing people travel via skateboard as a primary mode of transportation, while holding their secondary mode of transport: a surfboard. I miss the beach. I know I can’t afford to move back there now. got any ideas about how I could travel back in time and start college (in san diego) all over again? I guess I’ll have to settle for a mini vacation to go visit my parents. maybe one drive on I-15 will cure me of any lingering homesickness and remind me of why I left in the first place.
