Home… It’s Where The Heart is

I wonder… is home where you were born?

OR

Is home where you live?

A quick visit back to the city I grew up in over the weekend has reminded me that I have a new home. Home in a deeper sense than the house you live in. Home with different significance than the city you were born in. But it’s my home-place. It’s where my new life, with my new husband started. And I can honestly say – it’s good to be back home.

  1. While the question you pose may have been meant to be rhetorical, it is an interesting query with philosophical and perhaps spiritual significance. I am now living 5,000 miles from what I always referred to as my home town (Seattle), and I am as comfortable here (Panama) as I have been anywhere I have lived.

    Would I call it home? I’m not ready to do that yet unless home is defined by where you hang your clothes and lay your head. Though I am not homeless, I am only able to provide a temporary answer as to where my home is because I know the answer will change in 6 months or a year.

    Perhaps when someone puts me in a home I will have the answer. Or not.

    • I live 5000 kms (3100 miles) from the town I grew up in. I always wanted to spread my wings, see the world or at least more of my own country. I don’t believe I ever want to move back to that little city. Not that there is anything bad about it… it was a good place to grow up, a good place to raise children… it’s just not where I want to live.
