A sense of home.
It is true: ‘home is where the heart is’.
I was visiting my niece who lives near a country town, far from the big smoke. After months of planning, this day, our day was finally here. Just us two enjoying each other’s company.
‘That’s the only thing I need to do,’ says my niece.
We walk a block of the long, wide main street towards the bank.
Standing in the queue, my niece frowns.
‘You’re not bored?’ she asks.
‘Some people need to experience big adventures,’ I say. ‘Or, to travel to remote lands to feel alive. For me, right here and now, being in your company is more than enough.’
A thirst quenched.
A need satisfied.
