Home is Where the Heart Is

If a house is a place to hang your hat, and home is where the heart is, where is your heart?

Hi Laurie

Agreed that home is where we feel safe and related.

The relationships we make in community are important.
Our knowledge of local conditions, geology, weather, biological communities, are part of building a feeling of security; and most human security comes from human relationships – which for the present includes economic relationships.

And when our modern communication systems are functioning, those relationships can be world wide – so the nature of “home” is morphing. Part of home is now a connection to the internet and the wider community it empowers communication with.

Having lived here for 16 years now, it is both house and home.
And I still have a strong relationship with Waitakaruru, where I lived for 34 years prior to moving here to Kaikoura.
