What Makes A Place "Home" For You? I just got back from a very short road trip - two days in San Francisco, two days in Mendocino County. Very nice visit, for sure! San Francisco is an intense city, and Mendocino County is a place where most roads are not much more than donkey trails. But now I'm home, and it's so nice to be home. I've lived here about 1-1/2 years and it definitely feels like home now, but it took a while. I've never felt immediately at home in a new place, ever. Some places I've lived have never felt like home even after many years, and I'm not sure why. I know most PFers are young, and when you're young you think of "home" as where your parents live. But you will soon have to create your *own* home. Does it just take time for a place to become home? Is there something about the environment? Certainly people are an important element. What makes a place a home for you?
