craving sushi

October 26th, 2005


Sushi is my comfort food.

I crave sushi whenever things are up in the air, whenever decisions are to be made, or whenever I feel homesick. The above photo is from Vasabu in Irkutsk, a lovely and unexpected Japanese restaurant in the heart of Siberia.

The sushi was a bit unconventional, but filled that craving nicely.

And why now? I realized recently that this is the longest I’ve ever gone without seeing my parents. They live in Chicago, and I, two time zones away in Calgary. The last I went home was at Christmas, but every year before this one, I’ve been lucky enough to have “excuses” to head home a few times during the year.

I’m also at a bit of a crossroads in terms of future plans. Sandra is waiting to hear about several job opportunities that may have us staying in Calgary or moving far, far away. It’s hard to plan out the next few months, not knowing.

And on top of this is the MFA application I submitted to the UBC’s non-resident creative writing program. I should be hearing in a few weeks. Acceptance will change the shape of my next few years, surely.

And so, I’m craving sushi. Preferrably maguro. And unagi, and some ebi too.

But for now, I’m off to work at Knit One Chat Too.

    I’m so with you on this sushi as comfort food thing.

    Remember the Ectasy rolls in San Francisco?
