I’ve lived here my entire life. I shouldn’t feel homesick here (I could do with moving back to Pittsburgh, but Hellabama… No.). I’m not homesick for any place I am familiar with, I am homesick for the places I’ve never been. I’m homesick to see Igazu Falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina, for the Petra in Jordan, Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, the fjords of Norway, Angel Falls in Venezuela, the Matterhorn in Switzerland, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, and the Great Wall of China. I am homesick for the world. I live in it, and yet I haven’t seen it. So I’m going to.
