Native Soil.

((Synonyms 1. abode, dwelling, habitation; domicile. 2. hearth, fireside. 3. ASYLUM))

I had wanted to flee from this setting since I was 6 or 7. I swore, "THIS IS NOT MY HOME!" But with each passing year, I feel it calling me back – louder and louder – with each passing day.

How can a rinky-dink place be so reassuring? How could I travel to over 17 other countries and 26 additional states yet this pitiable settlement is what consoles me as the blissful "home" most of us covet?

I suppose it is merely an origin in which to disperse from, since less than a week is all it generally takes for me to yearn for "greener pastures."

Home, so welcoming, so familiar, ... so miserable.
