It's the end of April and my visit is soon coming to an end. Thursday morning, 'the good Lord willin' and the crick don't rise' I will be back in Southport and soon it will seem as though I'd never left. As I sit here typing away with 'Wheel of Fortune' in the background -- Oh my goodness, she won $100,000!
It is a good thing to get an injection of American life every year. I don't always enjoy it and a lot of the time I feel somewhat 'out of the loop', but it is where I grew up and it will always have some sort of hold on my psyche. Later on tonight I will start packing because tomorrow I have another task to take care of -- but more about that anon...not today.
When I get back to the UK I will be investigating the course of events I can take toward achieving my goal of citizenship. (Excuse me, but the television is on entertaining others -- did you know that Katherine Jenkins is competing in the American version of Strictly Come Dancing? She just danced the rumba to the Pacabel Canon... it seemed a bit odd) Yes, back to citizenship. I must investigate further The Man's investigations as written about here. I will also be writing about a different aspect of my journey toward this goal. For there was a long period of feeling estranged from my new country, when I felt very angry and felt that I would refuse to ever return. I am not sure exactly why I changed my mind. But something happened that made me look again with different eyes. Who knows what we will discover when I begin to write again about that time.
