In my heart, I was always an "american". I dreamed about raising my kids as Americans. I'm utterly heartbroken to be even thinking about this. Borderline depressed to be honest.

forgive the intrusion.

as awful as some things seem to be becoming here, do you think you could ever get this place out of your heart? As someone who knows a little about you, I don't think you'd ever get over the very real feeling of homesickness and a feeling of longing for something lost.

don't be hypnotized by the bright shiny jewel that is just over the horizon. the grass always looks greener when one is disappointed ... and I have a feeling that after the intial excitement of the move, that it would only be a matter of time before disappointment with the new set in as well.

America is a rough and tumble place. we've screwed ourselves over a dozen different ways .... but there is something unique and special about this place that no other place has, it gets under your skin and doesn't let go.

think hard my friend ...
