My hometown has a soul too, one I'm fond of as well, but its soul is a wounded one. It has some baggage, and it needs time to heal. Some day I might want to return there to live permanently, but I don't want to be there now. I love having my own space, free of anything familiar, for me to explore and play with. It's still a new relationship. I've just met this city, and I'm starting to fall in love with it. It's like meeting someone new, and feeling an affection start to grow from somewhere deep inside.
