What does it take for a place to feel like home? At first I thought it was about where you are born, connections, and memories, and I guess all those things do add up to a sense of home. However, when you move to a place far from your roots, I think only after you have experienced a broad gamut of emotions, highs and lows, victories and disappointments, pleasure and pain does that new place start to feel like home. I guess that’s how it has been for me. Home isn’t perfect but it’s where I have felt each minute of each hour of each day of each year I have lived for the past 10 years. It is so far from perfect but it’s my home.
