On some superficial level you can always adjust and get in line with the other ducks, but home is not anywhere. Home is the place where you feel at peace on a deeper level. It's where the smell of the air resonates inside you. It's where the warmth of the sun just feels right. It's where you get inspired and motivated. And ultimately, it's where you want to be when given the unobstructed choice.

I couldn't agree more

I agree with this too. Certain places just resonate with a given person more than others. Some places feel like home, and others never feel like home, no matter how long you're there. It doesn't mean you can't be happy or content just about anywhere, but there is something special about finding your perfect (or as close to perfection as possible) "place."

That really is true, and it's so strange because for myself, I never would have imagined that Michigan would be "it" for me. Of course, I'm not talking so much about downstate (which, to me, looks pretty much the same-in most areas- as anywhere else from the middle of the country on) as I am about N.MI and UP. When I finally landed there, it was like "omg...this is SO it", there was just something about it, EVERYTHING about it that just reached out and sucked me right in. Having lived in CA my entire life except for the last five years, I never really thought that a place would affect me like MI did- and moreso, MI feels completely like "home" in a way that for whatever reason, CA never did.

I can't wait to go back eventually, sigh!
