This Morning

by - 6.10.12

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. 
- George Eliot

Looking out the window in the morning is something I do everyday. Hmmm, I can't particularly say why, it must have been a habit acquired - sometimes to calculate how cold it is outside, sometimes to just wonder about life.

It's almost ten years ago when I came to this wondrous city, Vienna. The leaves were brown and yellow then as they are now when I looked out the window. The smell of autumn always makes me nostalgic. I have my share of good memories and not so fond ones but I always see Vienna as a beautiful city all in all.

Despite being at home somewhere in the world, it's inevitable for someone to look back at his or her origins and miss how life was once then (read: me). I agree with the song that goes:

Even though we walk the diamond-studded highways
It’s the country lanes and byways
That makes us long for home

Hopefully, there will come a time for me that I can say Vienna has totally enamored and owned me but that thought just makes me miss my childhood even more.
