    At the moment of writing this,

    , I am sitting in a very busy airport lounge waiting to board a plane that will take me on the first leg of my journey home. I've waited more than 30 years to go back to see what I used to call "home" I'm excited but nervous all at once. I really don't know what to expect as I...
