Each place has positives and negatives. During summer I remind myself that Phoenix is glorious for 8 months of the year, just glorious, and most people do not get 8 months of continually wonderful weather so this is why suffer through the brutal heat. I was born here and sometimes dream of a different lifestyle, wondering if I could be brave enough to dig my roots up and plant myself somewhere else, I don't know if I am. My grandmother left her native Ireland and moved to England, my mother left her native England and made a life here in the US. My gallavanting daughter has left Arizona and lived New Orleans, Seattle and currently D.C. just between the ages of 18-25. She even went to Seattle and D.C. without knowing a single soul, so brave.
I'm happy here with my quiet life where I never have to deal with snow, my sweet husband and I playing Racko over our breakfast and the hummingbirds outside my window. I'm quite certain I'd be happy just about anywhere but you know, an ocean breeze can be quite seductive.
Have you ever moved far away to somewhere you didn't know anyone?
