Monday, I am grateful...
...for finally appreciating where I came from. And no, I didn't live in a lop-sided shack. I come from the prairies. Where you drive down a long highway, fields of gold surround you and the endless blue sky is above you. Once in a while, you see a piece of land with lonely old shacks that are on their last legs. As I child, my imagination went wild when I saw old abandoned buildings in the middle of nowhere. I'm still curious and I miss driving down the highway with my father, under the prairie skies. There is an amazing sense of relief coming home now and to be surrounded by nothing but endless land, after living in a big city for a while now. When I come home, I feel like I can breathe and stretch my arms out as far as they can go. Free.
