chang|e one's mind

i wrote a song… in my mind

home is where…

with one comment

…the news channels are familiar.

that’s what i always say.  ok, i’ve never actually said that before, but i think it’s true.

sorry, this only applies to those who currently live away from your hometown.  when you go home and turn on the news, does it look really weird to you?  or maybe you think it’s comforting and familiar.

my theory is, wherever “home” is for you, that’s where the news anchors are the most familiar and comforting.  when i go home to charlotte, the newscasters are not familiar to me.  i feel like i’m on vacation somewhere and turn on the tv and the formatting of the headlines and the news reporters are all different and foreign to me.  you know the feeling?  when i come back to atlanta, however, that’s when i know i’m home.  this is not a knock on charlotte or my parents house or anything, i guess i just consider atlanta to be my home now.  i mean, i have lived here for almost 10 years now.

where is your home?  and how are the news channels like in your hometown?  familiar and comforting?  or strange and scary?  maybe not scary.  actually the meteorologist of one of the stations in charlotte has a wicked case of evil eyebrows.  in that case, he’s pretty scary.
