Home, Sweet Home (15)

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam
Be it ever so humble there's no place like home

The newspapers are still full of articles about the housing meltdown. Each statistic has thousands of personal stories behind the numbers (poor Detroit and all the people who lost their homes there).

Having a place to call home is at the foundation of Maslow's hierarchy of needs. We need the security of a nest.

So, it is a happy occasion when friends and family relocate out of choice. In the last month my delightful brother and sister-in-law have moved into a new place in the city (of Bruckmuhl, Germany). And good friends have found their new home in Washington state.

I get to send 'happy home' cards and congratulate them all!
