Today I am back.
Back from sunshine and lounging
to city humidity and scurrying.
Back from everyday-is-a-family-day
to saving it all up for brief snatches in the evenings and on weekends.
Back from eating and drinking (and drinking and eating)
to moderation and thinking about zipping up my skinnier jeans.
Back from we’ll figure that out at the end of the summer,
to let’s get this stuff organized (like, yesterday).
Back from swimming pools and sunburns,
to subways and taxis and (eventually) sweaters.
Back from hanging out,
to striving forward.
