Why Again?

Everything seems to be taken care of: I'm packed, and the plane leaves in just over 9 hours. I'll get there with two and a half hours to spare. And then it will be some time before I will return to visit again.

Sometimes, it's with great sadness that I part with this city. As I drove home after dinner today, I thought about the striking mountains casting long shadows under the sunset earlier today, and a tear almost came to my eye. Vancouver is, as one friend so aptly put it, dreamy. And I wonder constantly why I am so inclined to leave it for years at a time.

dreamy is apt because it applied to more than being perfect climate and nice standard of living. you know the reasons, i won't repeat them for fear of offending =)
