|sent from: London, UK. destination: Nanuet, New York, USA|
A man joined our team this week. He’s worked and lived in many places in the world, including LA, Thailand, India, and most recently Australia on “Happy Feet 2”. I don’t doubt that he would stay put if he could. As the weather has turned wintry in London, so he has arrived, leaving what would be late spring in Australia behind him. He talks of his shock of adjusting to London with wide eyes. I can see inside his head – the part of him that is somewhere warm and sunny and familiar. It is a reflection of a part of me I have safely tucked away. He doesn’t know his way around, and a different me would take him around and show him what I know. This me, however, nods and smiles and tells him he will adjust. Soon, I say, the days can only lengthen, and it will get better.
