Homesick

November 19, 2013

It was a day of highs and lows.
Things to be proud of.
(ahem http://mariashriver.com/blog/2013/11/step-away-from-the-drama-anna-kunnecke/ )
Then a glorious trip to the Japanese grocery store,
where I instantly realized why we hadn’t gone before…
because of the heartbreak of it,
the missing,
the little girl’s tears.
But then home, to the simple human comfort
of hot curry rice for dinner.
And tonight we even had
proper sweet curry pickles
and seedless cucumbers dipped in
properly eggy Kewpie mayonnaise.
So it might even have been worth it.
