Changing Home

You’ll feel so homesick that you’ll want to die, and there’s nothing you can do about it apart from endure it. But you will, and it won’t kill you. And one day the sun will come out – you might not even notice straight away, it’ll be that faint. And then you’ll catch yourself thinking about something or someone who has no connection with the past. Someone who’s only yours. And you’ll realize… that this is where your life is.

Nothing Beats Stepping Off the Plane on the Homeland Again

“Oh, London is a man’s town, there’s power in the air;
And Paris is a woman’s town, with flowers in her hair;
And it’s sweet to dream in Venice, and it’s great to study Rome;
But when it comes to living, there is no place like home.”

**Henry Van Dyke

Worldsick

“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.” 

**Judith Thurman

Home Against All Others

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

As a mid-westerner myself; I must agree 😛
