having moved around quite a bit i can truly say that place influences me more than almost any other factor. all my adult life i have been searching for the place that is home. where i belong through and through. more than this though, i know that i will feel it in my bones that i have found my home.
i have a wonderful man who has been my traveling partner and seeker of home as well. we met at a young age and magic intervened to bring the two of us together. it's been such a blast to share my life's story with him. needless to say he understands my restless spirit.
for the first time in a decade of moving, we have broken the cycle and returned to a place we have lived before. there were never a set of rules we were following, more the mantra 'the world is so big, why return to a place you've known before?' but that's the thing about life, it's ours. this place has made us happy like no other so why not give it another try. since we left the first time, this place been returning in our dreams. not a nightmare but rather a good friend who you miss. so here we are.
i'm on a journey of reflection and healing, washing away the years we traveled up hill. i'm thrilled to have set up our home and start the settling process. it's a new experience, this settling. having chosen the place deliberately feels like a gift. i'm finding my place here.
