They say you can never go home again. But what if you never left?
Things change. Jobs evolve and responsibilities are added. Streets widen. Landmarks are bulldozed and new ones take their place. People get older. Belongings accumulate, break, and get replaced. Friends find new opportunities and move away. New friends are made. Relatives pass away. Children are born. Coworkers move on to new opportunities. Fresh blood is hired to fill the void.
So say we don’t leave home. Can home leave us? I guess that was the original point of the saying, wasn’t it?
