Returning Home, Back to Paris

Being an ex-pat for over 16 years now makes concept of “home” a bit special. I mean is home where my dad, mom and sister are,where I grew up? Or is it the glittering tourist trap several thousand miles away here in Paris where I live with my wife and kids and where I work? Perhaps the answer is both. In any case, it is a relief to sleep in my own bed again. In fact, I am not going to belabor the point here tonight but I can honestly saw that I am a bit torn between my two countries and think that I can nearly be objective in pointing out advantages and disadvantages of each. For the moment, jet lag is getting the best of me and I am going to put down my iPad for the night. The real challenge will be to renew my stock of articles quickly so that I keep the creative juices flowing. Pity that I didn’t really get the time this vacation to work on some fiction…

    Home is where the heart is 🙂
    Even after living in Paris about a year, I still consider New Jersey my home. Maybe I’ll consider Paris the new home once I fluently learn French (hehe).

      Thanks Erik 🙂
      Not that I know of – more weight gained by forced stop on distance running to be honest. Perhaps the next chronicle should be how to lose the flab but without doing a severe diet – impossible task?

      Thanks for the comment. I don’t know what you are going to do here in Paris but I’d recommend the French classes at La Sorbonne because they are excellent. Perhaps a coffee one of these days?
