Memories in the rear view mirror are larger than they appear

Well, Marko's paw-holding (and tail-raising) tour of America has drawn to a close. It's nice to be back in front of a familiar computer and familiar heat. (It's not actually excessively hot today, which is good. But I'll never complain about the heat again. cryoyank was right.) But, god, I'm going to miss you guys. I've left pieces of my heart in America and I'll have to come back for them.

Before going, I speculated that this trip might break me, giving me an opportunity to rebuild myself. It didn't. Further, several people seemed to be quite taken by this humble rat from Australia. It's easy to dismiss my Australian fans, but Americans would not be so easily taken in. ;) It leaves me wandering if maybe there's more to me than I think. I shall have to meditate on that later.

In the mean time, I have been in transit for 34 hours (counting all the waiting in airports and arriving ridiculously early because it's an international flight) and I'm a smelly rat. I'm going to go have a shower.
