Life's a journey, and I love exploring. I believe we should live well, love much and laugh often. Twende!

Welcome to Tennessee
She moved here when she was quite young. She lived here, studied here, played here.
By the time she went to college, she had already been. The first time home was an idealised relief, that was soon seen for what it was.
And then she left, on a three year sojourn. It doesn't matter where she went, but just that she did.
What was it about this place that called her back? She wasn't too optimistic about it, but is here nonetheless.
We spoke about lots, from politics to the marriage of clones. All flowed with the atmosphere of tea and coffee. Place didn't really matter right then, did it.
Now I ask:
Does she go back?
