Feels like home

The love she was looking for was there all along, at a funky place by the bar

Walking down the sidewalk of a tidy Sacramento suburb where I have lived for nearly 20 years, it suddenly occurred to me to ask, “Why? Why have I lived here so long?”

It’s not as if I chose this place from a host of desirable candidates. It was family that drew me here. But my family has, for the most part, moved away. Yet, here I stay. Walking past the fields of concrete that wait for SUVs full of young people who love fancy coffee drinks.
