Where Would It Be?

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? asks the prompt for today on NaBloPoMo.

Yes, I’d love to  have a home on the beach and another one in the hills.  But most of all, the place  I long to be is home. Actually, home is not really a ‘place’ for me. I’ve had too many moves growing up to identity home with a house. Home, for me, is a place I can be myself in. I’m grateful that I am home.

    Home is where peace dwells. I’d like to say it’s my body but I know that we’re made for more than that…

    Nothing can beat your own home..wherever you be, finally when you are home, that makes you feel warm and at home 🙂

    In Kerala (near my mom’s or dad’s home, where they grew up).

    I love both places – peace and quiet (and you can have some fun too). Both the homes are located in a hilly area (although things have changed a lot with urbanization and more people moving into the area).

    This question has always haunted me, “What is home?” And I’m at a loss to put my finger on one place and call it my home. Is it the place where I was born or the place I grew up or the place I have settled down? I wonder whether it is the people or place that makes a home. I am still looking for answers.

    Joy always,
    Susan

    A place which is tranquil with lots of greenery, water…just nature.

    I don’t necessarily want a beach house, but has to have flowing water bodies really really close by. Water soothes me, makes me feel one with myself and everything around me! So in that sense, I guess I am going to be neighbours with Privy Trifles! 🙂

    In my dreams, I would love to live near the beach or on the hills. But, in real life, it is my own home :).

    Pyar jahan le jaaye wohi ghar ho jaata hai, Corinne.. wherever love takes you. The most important thing is to feel complete and fulfilled.

    For me it would be a beach side house… I simply love water bodies…be it lakes/ seas/ ocean. Anything. Their rustling sound, the serenity, blue vastness…it is all so mesmerizing for me!

    It would always be the hills for me Corinne!

    I just love the coolness of the hills, and of course the fresh and pure air. But I agree, any place is paradise if it’s a warm home, which is what we all need.

    (Don’t tell me you are again into one of these challenges!! You just finished one in October! But I love your spirit and know for sure you would do this one as well as that too!)
