I live in a forty-nine square mile city. It’s big enough to have a ridiculous number of neighborhoods. If you live in one, you find out you have neighborhoods inside yours that outsiders have yet to recognize. If you drill down a little further, you can find neighborhoods with sort of floating neighborhoods passing through them. We do not appreciate the floaters. We call them homeless.
I bring this up not in the interest of making a political statement. I am wanting to ask if you have found your home place and what it is that makes it so. First, so that you recognize what is the core of it and you will keep even though things around it change. Second, so that if you have not yet found it, you can begin to become clear about what you want it to be. Because when that becomes clear, what it is you want is given the seed to draw you to your home place.
