>What is home? A Place, a concept, a feeling….

>

Before we left Phuket, I had a few minutes to myself and began to reflect on how some parents would probably chastise us for traveling so much. I could here them say how one needed to be in a permanent place, which would provide ‘stability’ for a child. I could see them going over the importance of landing a ‘secure’ job, a ‘career’.
The strange thing is that all of these concepts of what home is to some people is absolutely foreign to me. Because of the extensive amount of traveling I did with my family ( my dad was a salesman), it is in fact the way I find home: through experiencing life in various countries and cultures. I like the idea of having a career, but only if the career that one pursues one truly loves ( but come on people, you know most career people hate their careers and just do it for money or out of habit), but I am a writer, so until I have a novel out no one counts that as a career. It is sort of looked down upon, being an artist. That is such a sad way of looking at art and those who make it. It is not how I view it, nor how my hubsand does.
What really is home? Is it a place, and if so is it th place one was born or where one has lived the most? Is it a feeling, or a place which brings about said feeling? Or is it where you family is located? It’s an insteresting debate. To me, it’s where I can feel welcomed. That is number one in my book. Are the people in the community friendly and accepting or judgemental for the most part? If I am welcomed ( or left alone to be my strange, obscure self) then I feel like me, and that is when I feel at home.
I hope everyone takes some time to reanalyse their definition of home, and strives to go where they are happiest.
