An Ode to Berlin

I moved to you 5 years ago this month, and how that time has flown. I never knew love for a place before living in you, and now I’m head over heels. You can be a harsh bitch who kicks me when I’m down and you provide both immense challenges and endless frustrations. But your magic, rough charm and raw beauty continue to take my breath away every single day. You and your inhabitants fill my heart with endless inspiration and make my soul sing. As dysfunctional as our relationship is, you’ve changed my life completely by giving me the tools to discover myself, and for that I’m eternally grateful. No matter where the future takes me, you are now my home and always will be.
