It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want and then you realise that people you've known forever don't see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories but find yourself moving on - Nicholas Sparks
We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known. We may go there through our imaginations and the written word.
