Missing Oxford

I left Oxford a couple of weeks ago and now I'm in Missouri researching my next Civil War book. I'm also doing a bit of fiction, as usual, including my novel-in-progress that's set partially in, you guessed it, Oxford. Write what you know and all that.

The problem is, it's making me miss Oxford! Just today I was editing a chapter that has a long descriptive passage of one of my favorite spots in town, and suddenly I had a severe case of homesickness.

What to do? I won't be getting back to Oxford until April at the earliest. Perhaps missing it will help me write about it. Or maybe it will simply make writing about it torture.
