a letter to my former home and the place my heart still resides.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011


dear salzburg,
my city! oh, how i miss you, my city!  and though i visit you quite a bit, there’s still that little bout of separation anxiety that continues to plague me (will it ever go away?).  i know it’s been awhile since i packed up my things and headed out (wasn’t my idea, i swear) but the thing is – you still feel like home to me.  even though my passport technically says it’s no longer legal for me to call you “home”, my heart says otherwise.  and even though your austrian residents still refuse to speak german with me (you remember this tirade, don’t you?), i’ll excuse that.  they’re so charming in their lederhosen and dirndls that it doesn’t even phase me anymore.  but i have to know: do you miss me as much as i miss you?  i like to think you do.  and i also like to think that, after mozart, i’m the former salzburg resident who you miss most.  is that true? …actually, don’t answer that. 
i can’t wait to see you again, salzburg.  until then, i’ll just keep talking about you way too much and thinking about you even more.
sincerely,
me.
p.s. sigh.
