the great northwoods

i am here and so far so great. i have been hanging out with my mom, sis and niece. have gotten to see the extended family for a big turkey dinner in august (i carved the turkey, as usual) and have even seen tons of friends. everyone is so supportive and i keeping hearing how good i look, it may/has gone right to my head. feeling good about my people accepting/respecting my boundaries and overall it has been awesome to be back. drove by some old bars i used to haunt and even though i wasn't going in they seemed to radiate with a sense of caution. so much time spent and lost in these places, it feels weird to be driving by and not heading there. john irving said it best in one of his earlier novels - hotel new hampshire - that you need to keep passing the open window.
