Red, White and Blue
Back home in America people are celebrating Independence Day. Maybe not every last American but I am sure most of them.
For me I have been without JH this weekend due to that he had a business trip in China. Yesterday I thought there was another Tomatillo taco gig going on downtown, but after I got there and saw no one around realized I had the date wrong. So one thing led to another I ended up at Kristen's to chill out.
As for today I am having another chill out day. But I am enjoying this Independence weekend by listening to A Prairie Home Companions July 4th Special and feeling like one cozy American.
The whole thing though makes me miss my family and my country. Yet I end up feeling like I appreciate America more than I ever did when I lived there.
What happens to be the most interesting part of all this is when I am out and about around other Koreans watching as they go by without a recognition of my country's holiday. Which makes sense, I wouldn't expect them to care about every country's major holidays.
Happy Birthday America!
