Our journey finding a place to call "home"

 This is a response I wrote to a friend who asked if we'd found a place yet to call home:


Before we left, I wondered how it would feel to be out there exposed to the world without a place to call home. It's been interesting. Our car is one home. Though I can easily find "home" where we "hang our hats" for the night. Since we've arrived in Texas, we've spent more than one night in a place. That seems comforting. I did months of research on places to live before we left. There are many wonderful cities in the U.S. -- and in the world. At this point, Mr. F wants to stay in the U.S. He also wishes to be somewhat close to his family summer retreat and vineyard. That makes sense. I want to be in a sunny, warm climate with little or no snow. We both want to be in a community that is good to its creative people and has a small environmental footprint or is working hard to create one. We enjoy Austin. Though we have some other places we want to explore and/or re-visit, like Albuquerque and Santa Fe. This trip is more than seeking a place to settle down. We've been enjoying the adventure, meeting different types of people, visiting people we haven't seen in years, trying new experiences. I will be happy if we decide on a place to stay by the end of 2009.

hi Nancy and Tam
This Is Stark
Austin sounds great for you guys. Jenny has a classmate who moved there 15 years ago to make music and loves it. Maria, the pets and I are heading home this week. I've made some good art but sold nothing. We've had the best "winter" ever.
