I'm feeling a little ambitious
A little frustrated
Certainly a little stuck, but not in a bad way,
Necessarily.

It's the kind of little squeeze that fosters growth -

Greenville's nice in the evenings: quiet
And small. But in the day time I'm hard-boiled;
I want Bigger! I want Better!

I miss the city.

I miss public transit and walking. I miss homeless people.

Dirty streets.

I miss the noise, the sound and stink of traffic I won't
Dare step out in front of
Rushing by. I miss it.

Even though I love the sounds of here. Of home. Of summer.
The subtle groan of a sleeping beagle on the couch.
The whistle of a tea kettle. The faint sound of a june
bug's wings, fluttering off into the sunshine.

But I want Amsterdam, and I want it now.
I want dikes and bicycles, coffeeshops and crooked buildings.
I want tulips and Delft, stroopwaffels and tall, tall friends.
I miss the dirty streets.

It's no wonder he thinks I'm crazy.

Why would he think your crazy for wanting something else or missing other places? Why not go back there, whacha got to lose?
