Exhale

April 5, 2010

I’m finally starting to feel like myself again.  After walking nearly 20 miles around New York looking for apartments and a big night out on Friday night, I’ve finally caught up on sleep.  I’ve done a lot of yoga and some running and I can feel myself getting back in shape. I can control what I eat again, which is pretty great.  Yesterday I cleaned out my closet, purging everything I haven’t worn in years–my high school graduation dress, college formal dresses.  It felt so good to just get rid of everything, to start clean.

A lot of people have said to me, it feels like you never even left!  To me, it feels like I did leave, like we were away for a long time, and we changed.  Brazil was so different, and I got so used to being there, to the rhythms and customs.  We were gone long enough that I feel different now.

    Be patient, it’s not going to happen soon. I’m glad you liked my mother’s letter. Is Marjory coming, too? I didn’t know. The weather has been perfect–com muito sol, e 23 ou 24 graus.
