sad, homesickness Show more
Every once in a while I get super homesick for Canada, specifically the prairies; I haven't lived there for 19 years, half my life now, but I miss it.
I know if/when I leave London there will also be things I miss...
...but I think what I miss about the prairie is tangled up with thoughts of what could have been, had I stayed. So in addition to the people and places I miss, I also yearn for whatever unrealistic, happy perfection my imagination conjures up.
