Missing California

Last week, an acquaintance of mine was on The View. He is the doctor to one of my best friends and the ladies were interviewing him on the topic of HIV/AIDS because he is a(n inter)national expert.

This weekend, I opened The Advocate and saw another acquaintance of mine featured with his partner and three children in the article about gay parents.

I have to say it is making me miss California and my former life there. Here, I'm isolated. There, I know hundreds of people and am very active in the community. Did I ever mention I won an Orange County GLBT Volunteer of the Year award?

Am I home sick? After 21 years here, then 20 years there, now 4 years here, where exactly is home?

Dare I say, home is where the heart is?

Yeah, sorry, same cliche from me. But it's true, alas.
