This is My Home
This is My Town
But the question remains, is it my "home town"? I've lived here for almost 12 years, but one tends to think of their home town as where they grew up, if indeed they grew up in a single town. I did not grow up in this small town, but a larger small city in Georgia. I spent more years in Birmingham and immediate suburbs than I have here. I love it here though, with its small town atmosphere, but there are constant subtle reminders that we're outsiders. We weren't born here. Heck, we didn't even grow up here. We can't even remember who lived in that nice house on the corner before they died back in '87. So is this my home town? No, but for right now, it's my town.
