Home is...

What is a home? What is a house?

A house is a dwelling, a structure of some type. The term "house" generally implies ownership and space.

Home is different. Home is much more personal, emotional. A connection of some sorts. Roots. You might live in a house but it is not your home.

I am thinking about this as I move from the home I have spent the last ten years or so at, to an apartment in New Jersey.

When will that become my home?

Will it ever?

In that sense, I haven't had a place I would call home since 8th grade. I get a kick out of traveling, and because I do, I don't identify any of my "hubs" as a home. I am an incarnation of Ryan Bingham.
