Aren't we all just looking for a place to call home? I have a house now, and I'm not moving anymore. For a while at least. But I can't forget my grandmother's words in a letter she wrote to me when I was looking for myself in Tokyo: The world is the same shit everywhere (it sounds better in Yiddish). At 89 she must have known what she was talking about.

I'm not sure the answer is so simple. Some of us move because we can, because we've become addicted to the movement, to the excitement of exploring a new place. Sometimes I feel it is our inherent nomadic nature, commanding us to move. As for home – it seems to me that many of us are searching for an ideal of home; a place to long for, but not actually inhabit.
