My home

January 2, 2018

My Home….

For the past 6 or 7 years, I have chosen to not live in one home, stay in one place. After my divorce, I couldn’t come up with one place I wanted to “be.” I wanted to be everywhere, or at least have the opportunity to be everywhere. For many years, my car was a comforting place that felt most like home.  I have lived in many homes owned by other people, and mostly with their belongings. My belongings are in storage except for the few clothes I own, my camera and computer gear, and a few books.  Truthfully, most of the time I love it that way. There are times when I miss seeing my girls’ artwork that I have framed, or my mother’s special plates. But I like to travel light.

I have been fortunate to find really neat places to call “home.”  I often live in “winter rentals” along the coast of Maine which allows me to afford to live in homes and cottages I would never be able to afford otherwise.  In this gypsy life, I have lived in a sweet cottage by a dog friendly beach and the best bakery, I lived in an apartment over a lighting store, in a Victorian home full of books and art from around the world, a ski house in the Western Maine mountains, a Northern Maine organic farm with my sister, and now in a little cottage right on Casco Bay. My home is wherever I am at the time. My home is always open to my friends and family, and my home is right here in my heart and will follow me wherever I go.  My home….

        Hello Charlie, Yes, I am in Southern Maine for the winter months and then generally, travel around a lot in the warmer weather spending a lot of time in Northern Maine. Its a life that seems to be working for me at this time. We’ll see in the future…. Thanks so much for reading and commenting.
