Rückkerhrunruhe: the feeling of returning home after an immersive trip only to find it fading rapidly from your awareness.

I am wondering about the way our brain and memories function. Two days ago I was on a 9 hour flight back home, exhausted but happy at having encountered such a beautiful people. Then, all of a sudden, “my” life caught me in a whirlwind of appointments, laundry, hopping at the grocery store to restock the refrigerator (or our stomachs), mow the lawn, cook, answer emails… and this beautiful country which I encountered and loved, is slowly fading! Such vivid memories that were such a part of my life have been shoved aside by the demands of my current life. Hum… no matter, the memories are sweet. Coming back we had two weeks of vegetables waiting for us at the cooperative farm Tourne-Sol and we are grateful. Here is a leek.
