Sometimes home calls your name so loudly,
you cannot ignore it.
But home is different for different people.
For some, it is a place,
for others, it is a feeling.
For me, it is a hybrid of both.
California has been home for ages now,
I have always said that I was born in Kenya
but I grew up in Los Angeles.
Now, more than ever, in these Trump times,
home, with a feeling, is beckoning.
Perhaps because love awaits,
because a slow down at this time and age
seems much needed and required.
I do not know.
I am heeding the call.
