I like the repeated references to your heart as you took us to each of your homes, and the fact that you expressed it differently each time.

So...I'd have avoided the well-known proverb in the first sentence, and led with the second--a better hook.

Great lesson at the end--thanks!

This was an interesting read. Although just a repetition of the same thought, you gave it life by the way you presented it. Nicely done.

Home indeed is where the family is! I loved how it was the 'heart' that was doing all that moving! There were a few touches of humor in here and it kept this piece just the right tone. ^_^

The concept of "home" has become very poignant for me, since I've spent 24+ years on each coast in search of something that felt like my grandma's house in my early childhood. This story subtly expresses the author's deep feelings of rootlessness, only satisfied when she recognized that home isn't someplace but someone. I really liked this piece, and if I hadn't been in the process of moving (for the last time? ;-) ) I would have contributed a piece on this topic myself.
