I always take a moment to say goodbye to all things from this house, the one where I grew up. Every time I part feels like I leave a different piece of me here, call it a seed, a scratch, a doodle on the wall... but it is something, all right.
And it’s funny, but when I return, everything is as it always has been; nothing changes, only me.
It has been 17 months since last time I visited, I didn’t think it mattered that much until I walked inside. I needed this, I had been craving for this “feeling” only this house can give me during all 2019; just didn’t recognized it.
I needed the smell of my Mom’s kitchen, the warmth of my bed, the cuddling in the couch to watch tv with my bebés twins, the super early morning coffee with my Dad, the sound of the birds outside in the backyard, the family meals outdoors and indoors, the vinito nights con los Muñiz, the yelling and the laughing, my closet with old clothes I forgot I had and of course, the sensation of Chucho y Benito -world’s most beautiful beagles-licking my face and my fingers when I pet them.
No, next time it won’t take me this long to come back to visit. I’m always saying I need to step out of Tulum from time to time to recharge my energy, even living in that paradise requires one to disconnect and change the scenery a bit. But I forgot the part of recharging myself with familiar energy, with mamá, papá, las twins, los chuchos hasta el Muñiz (intruso) y todo Mexicali.
