I have two countries I feel like my national, I have a few cities I feel like a base, several people with different colour who I feel like my family.-- I am only 31years and 350days old:Psundaymorningstaple wrote:Definitely not lost familiarity, but home is a town of less than 10k people in a farming/seafood community. So aside from how the crabs are running and how much johnson grass is in the corn or the moisture content of the soybeans crops, there's not too much to talk about other than the Balmer Ravens or Orioles - football/baseball. Oh, and as the Eastern Shore of Maryland is full of GOP sympathizers, Our nearby neighbour (100km), Washington DC. Otherwise, pfffft!JR8 wrote: +1. funny isn't it, you miss home, but then go home, and er... it's not home and you yearn to be back here. So I totally get the running out of conversation/[novelty; or should that be lost familiarity?]. Damn it's complicated It's D-1 on my 9th relo, and still not heading for home.

50th class reunion. Wow, that's going to be an eye-opener and perhaps culture-shock rolled into one. All those individual journeys crossing once more. Are you drawing up a must do/eat whilst there list? You'll be like a reverse snowbird, going to Florida and finding it cold... hehe...
Maybe they are a little better today what with the advent of the Internet and FB. I'll be finding out soon enough I guess. Oh, and yes, I have a date with the Crab Claw Restaurant in Saint Michaels, MD (neighboring town of around 2K people - lived there for the first 10 years of my life). Should be a good one (3rd day of the reunion gathering for lunch there). I think we all worked at least a couple of months there in our teens during summer vacation. Steamed crabs, fresh oysters, soft crab sandwiches, crabcakes and beer!
JR8, you know what they say..... the road to perdition is paved with good intentions. I'll probably just keel over in the harness one day.
I remember a courchsurfing host once told me: no matter where u r, no matter who u r with, u should make urself feel like home, because earth is our home
