Happy 4th

A few years ago I had a student who was interested to find out that I had lived in Spain. Upon finding out that I had returned home after two years, his only question was “Why?”

My only response was, “Because this is home.”

I like to think of myself as someone with an international perspective. I love traveling and living abroad. I adore Spain and would love to take my family there to live for a year or two.

But I love my own country more. This is home.

Happy Independence Day, everybody.

Happy 4th to you! I only ever lived in England, but I also prefer the US. Apparently, so do many many legal and illegal immigrants, who come and stay. God bless the USA.
