  • I like where I am. There are many places I have visited and really liked, including oversea foreign nations " It was great to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there". This, and "there's no place like home " phrases define most people's attachment to a place but more likely, an attachment to the people in that place wherever it is.

  • Interesting point about the attachment to people.! Those ARE what keeps me most attached to a place but in today's world of communication it is possible to stay in touch with almost anyone, anywhere.

    I communicate more now, with a more diverse group of people but have much less physical contact than before. I can stay on my hills for weeks and never feel socially deprived but of course, I have my immediate family, so that softens the distance.

  • If I can dream, it would be in one of the small towns north of Santa Barbara CA. and near the beach. Despite all the problems they have. I miss the beach and (usually) great weather. There are so many more activities within driving distance. Well, this is just a dream, unless you have lots of money. Shelbyville is not bad in itself! HP

  • Steve, I have family and friends that moved north, south, east and west. Most moved for economic reasons and most want to move back. But now have children that are attached to their new homes and don't want to be separated from them. Technology cannot bridge the physical gap that face to face interactions provide. If I was rich, I might have several homes but my time spent there would be directly tied to how much friends and family would be there with me.
