A man travels the world over in search of what he needs

"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs," - said George Moore, - "and returns home to find it. That is really true, sometimes you leave your hometown in order to find your place elsewhere. Sometimes you leave your place of birth only to return years later and find that you belong there after all.

I sometimes wonder if human beings behave like seekers, as it were, especially in their decision to move from one place to another. Some move to be nearer to family. Some move for a job. Some move for the excitement of a city's culture. They say, that they "fit better" there. I cannot always understand they decisions. Why leave all native people that know you and love you to move to a place where she would be an instant stranger?

As for me, I feel protected in my current city. To say "I do not like" - palter, say "love" - gloss, here I spent my childhood, here I was born and grew up, lived here my beloved grandparents, and as if it was, but about the place where you spent most of his life simply can not say. It is a city that irritates me almost daily, but I don't ever want to leave this city.

We may become bored or irritable at times with home and family and familiar surroundings. All this may seem unglamorous, with a sense of sameness, and other places may sometimes seem more exciting. But when we have sampled much and wandered far and seen how fleeting and sometimes superficial some other things are, our gratitude grows for the privilege of being part of something we can count on home and family and the loyalty of loved ones.

I would like to end with the words from an unknown source: "We are most of us very lonely in this world; you who have any who love you, cling to them and thank God".
