Being “bicontinental” is a little like this image. Wherever I am, part of me resides elsewhere.

Days into my Western stay, I feel like a tourist, and yet it’s all utterly familiar. I left belongings here and there. Amy boxes are stashed in garages, basements, and closets. Little by little, I rediscover my cool weather clothes, art supplies, and precious items I could not bear to part with but are too heavy to haul across the world.

Jet lag is a thing and I give myself a solid week to recover. Dreams are intense and I feel a bit stoned.
