For most people the question, “Where is home?” is simple to answer. Maybe they’d tell you their address, city of residence, or the country they’re a citizen of. Or, perhaps, they’ll tell you a special place of the heart, like a grandparent’s house, or the area their family came from.
If you ask me that question, I’d have a hard time replying.
Where I live now in Florida is home, but so is London, Ontario, Canada, and Kingston, Jamaica. I miss them both when I’m not there, although I’ll be the first to say I’m ecstatically happy where I am now too.
It’s tug-of-heart-and-soul, to be honest.
The pandemic really put pay to any plans I had to go to either Canada or Jamaica, and I can’t tell you how excited I was to go to visit my kids in Canada last year. Then, just this month, I finally made it back to Jamaica—and I suddenly felt complete again.
Although I’m still trying to recover physically from the trip!
It really made me think, though, about that question of home. Is it really a physical place at all? Or, like love, is it where the heart lies? And, like love, is it okay to have many focuses of your attention? If we can love parents, spouses, children, and friends, can’t we love all the places we have unbreakable bonds to—call them all “home?”
I rather think we can.
And I know I always will.
