Returning home

All these years on the blog, I have been writing in English. Most of my academic work and just about all the blogging has been in English. While still not perfect, even I can see that my language has changed and developed since the first posts almost 5 years ago.

Now I feel homesick. I feel homesick for a language that touches me in a different manner, a longing towards harsh consonants, clear vowels and words that bring to mind a wider range of meanings. The writing I am preparing for the next 6 months will be in Norwegian, and I find myself hungry for it, as if I am going home after a long, long journey.
