Where Do I Live?

Having lived in so many places sometimes I awake in the morning and before opening my eyes I forget in which bedroom I sleep. This morning, hearing the sounds of the summer birds chirping, I thought I was back in my bedroom in Stamford. Then, as I drifted further, my mind wandered to London. Again I wandered and this time it was Houston. In the end it is Alameda in which I live.

I am reading a story about Marie Antoinette and the early days of her marriage have touched my heart as it reminds me of the seven years I lived in such sadness. I think that is why I am dreaming of so many homes.
