St Louis is my home town. I haven't lived there for 12 years
and do like to claim Portland as my new home town. My definition
of a native is "deciding to stay" and I have. I don't get back
to St Louis much since my dad died and I have no other family
there. Well no other blood relatives but plenty of family. You
know the saying "friends are the family you choose for yourself".
Week 3 took me to St Louis and my work that week was connecting
with old friends, not to be confused with friends that are old.
Week 3 was fabulous!
