Christmas in Chesterfield Inlet again.
From the troops.
From the home.
Merry Christmas to the readers and the stalkers.

Demons can come in all shapes and forms. For some, it's nightmares creating the sensation in their sleep. For others, it's a fear of depths
For me, it's returning to a land that is unfamiliar. Unfamiliar as I still call the place my homeland.
People I no longer recognize, places I no longer identify with, roads that did not exist. Feelings long swept away come rushing back with the only familiar demon I recognize.
The water. The surf. The river. And the bay.
168 hours is not enough.I shall need to return for less glorious reasons, but for this nightmare, 168 hours was more than enough time for the Demon On Arrival.

All writers abhor going home.
For some, it's a case of not having achieved enough. For others, it's a case of facing the music on what they have achieved.
For I, it's facing the demons.
I have looked at photographs and not recognized my hometown. I have examined a map and not know locations. I have emailed others, to be greeted by non response.
The demons are awaiting my arrival.
