I love you Halifax! I lived here for over a decade, and started taking you for granted: the buses were always off-schedule; the small size was starting to cramp my style; there was nothing left for me to explore. I left for BC thinking, this is it Halifax--we're breaking up. Boy was I wrong! BC is fine but crazy expensive, and the Pacific Ocean is no match for the sheer sublimity of my fierce Atlantic and the awe-inspiring blizzards it whips up. The people, my loving friends who never lost touch with me after I defected...I missed you so much, Halifax. I'm home now. Home. And I'm so grateful that even though I broke up with you, you still love me and take me back with open arms. I'll never leave you again. Marry me? :)
