Kind of a follow up to my last post…
The couple of days after taking Anna to the beach, I wondered where home is for me. Now that school is starting that’s the question everyone asks… “Where ya from?”
I never know how to answer that question. Since we left the South Shore 14 years ago, I haven’t lived in one place for more than 2 years. In fact I’ve had about 11 addresses in that time, at least. I don’t think I’ve forgotten any.
So I guess that’s another reason why I have this attachment to that area of the province. I lived 13 years there, and covered a LOT of it on my bicycle, and then when I could drive, even more of it in the car.
My parents now live back near where they grew up, I lived there when I was really young, and have spent a fair bit of time in the area… but it never felt like home. The lack of the ocean maybe? I dunno.
So where is home for you? I still feel that home for me in on the South Shore of NS. At least that’s where I try to go when I need time to think.
There will probably be more on this some other time, but for now… dinner is nearly ready!
