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.
