Current State

Where do you live? Sleep the most often? At the end of the day, where do you call home?

For some of my relatives, friends, and acquaintances their answer is a house or apartment located near their birthplace. Perhaps down the street, or a few miles from where they grew up.

For others the current and original are separated by hundreds, perhaps thousands, of miles, national boundaries, or cultural divisions.

A few years ago I realized that I’ve lived in this current, adopted of the United States longer than in Wisconsin, where I was born and grew to early adulthood. Where has all the time gone? I got here by an indirect route, with stops of varying time in other states.

Does length of time make it home? Experiences? Intention to stay?
