I have lived in Texas, California and Oklahoma. That makes me a Texlahomafornian. Is that a thing? Let’s say it’s a thing…. you know, cause I’m here and um, well, I just said it, so it’s a thing now. Oh, and I forgot a very short stint in Alaska during my wild late-teen years. Don’t ask.
There are some interesting and fabulous things about living the nomad life. Adventure, exploration, a fresh start, photographs-o-plenty, meeting all kinds of people, and creating lots of memories.
Unfortunately, there is a downside, as well: interrupted relationships, getting lost and having to learn the roads and shortcuts, a start-and-stop career, and a dreadful and continual lack of that feeling of “home.” Those photographs and memories would probably mean a lot more if I was still connected to all of those faces and places.
Honestly, I’m tired of moving. I hope this is the last.
