So yeah: I live in New York. Say that to folks back home in Texas and they tend to wrinkle-up their brows and flash a momentary look of hostility. I'm Texan, born and raised. I love that I'm from Texas.
But after over 30 years in New York, I'm constantly reminded of my home state. My adopted state looks like a not so lost sibling. Corn, soy beans, wheat, diary cows, vineyards, apple orchards, rolling hills, farms, and yes, big skies.
I'm a Texan in a New York state of mind.
