‘Cause He’s Returning on a Jet Plane…

Tomorrow, my brother will be home from a year-long trip in Japan.  He spent his time there studying (hopefully), getting absorbed in the culture, and having the experience of a lifetime.

He will be home for about four days before he has to go back to school for the fall semester.  He and I have never been super close, but he is my baby brother, and I am sad that I won’t see him for very long before he’s gone again for school across the state.  I have this hinky feeling that I’m not going to see him very much anymore, period.  I don’t think he’ll be in the States very long after he graduates, and I don’t know that I will get the opportunity to visit him as much as I would like in Japan.  I’m just going to have to make a point of visiting him more often this year in BG.

I can’t imagine that the adjustment to life back in the States is going to be very easy for him.  He’s coming home from his favorite place on earth back to an obligation he doesn’t want to fill.  I can’t say as I envy his predicament too much.
