NaBloPoMo June 2013 is coming to an end. Today’s prompt is the last for this month, since Saturday and Sunday fall on a weekend, and are thus saved for “free-writing.” Of course, I’ve spent most of the month free-writing, so why should it matter? It doesn’t.
Anyway, heeere’s the prompt:
Are you still living in the town where you were born? Tell us about why you did or didn’t move.
Actually, I never lived in the town where I was born—because the town doesn’t have a hospital. 😉 However, the house in which my family lived when I was born was the same house we lived in when my mother died and my father went into a nursing home some 38 years later. You’d think it was a magnificent house. It wasn’t.
Perhaps my preference for staying in one place is inherited.
I’ve thought about returning to my hometown in my golden years, but growing up there really wasn’t a happy experience. And besides, there’s those damn winters.
