Fatigued? Broken-hearted? In need of a refreshing escape? TLC? Home-cooked meals?
Look no further: home.
It’s been over a year since I’ve returned, and, as always, New York area has captured my heart. Don’t go back, it begs. Start a new life here!, it commands. My heart is torn between what I know would be a great life and what I’ve been working so hard to make into a great life. They lie on different sides of the globe and tug in their respective directions. Dammit, Tokyo, why do you always draw me back? Why do you refuse to lose to New York, Europe, anywhere else?
One day, I will leave, quite happily and ready to do so. But for now, I know there are things worth going back for. And so, on Sunday, I will. But for now, home, home, homey-home. Ah.
