Apples to Oranges

Last week, my friend Thomas sent me some pictures he took while kayaking on the Chicago River. They made me surprisingly homesick, and I had Earl Hooker's "Sweet Home Chicago" in my head for the rest of the day.

Then, my family and I visited a thermal bath resort in the Alps this weekend, and homesickness ceased being a problem.

I'm not saying one place is better than another. But being homesick for one great place while living in another great place sure seems like a waste of time.
