I believe being around family is the most beautiful & heart-wrenching experience.
You love them yet wince at their shortcomings. You sprung from your parents but aren't them at all. Being at home equals nostalgia mixed with boredom. In your room, you find dozens of relics of who you were years ago, pieces even you had forgotten but are delighted to revisit.
These days are too long yet this life is too short.
