Note from the UK

You know how the film ‘The Hurt Locker’ is all about how war is a drug? That the ‘rush of battle is a potent and lethal addiction’?

Remember the scene at the end of the film that shows Jeremy Renner on leave walking through a supermarket bored, because there’s only one thing he knows he loves?

Picture me in Sainsbury’s and you have that exact scene.

There is a famous saying:

“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”

And it is true.

Now that I have been away, I realize it’s all I want to do.
