I have lived in 20 cities and have been fortunate to find something good about each. I have made each place my own for the time I was there. Some I really came to appreciate and see as a home. While for a few other, I knew I was just passing through. And, then there were the ones that I really wanted to love but just couldn’t forcing me to move on.
The best have been those whose bright lights mesmerized me and whose city streets I could freely meander. Entranced by a varied rhythm allowing to follow one’s own beat. Freedom to be oneself. Freedom to forge a unique path. Freedom to be reigned in.
In a way those relationships with each of those cities I havd lived in resembled the dynamics with people in one’s life. And, similarly I take a piece of each with me wherever I go to next.
