For years, Amira and I had thought about where we wanted to "settle down" when we were done living nomadically.
Our thinking went something like this: We really love living here (wherever we happened to be at the time). We fall in love with every place we live.
On the other hand, we want to be close to family, which is mostly in California between L.A. and Sonoma.
But then we'd remind ourselves that living nomadically enables us to spend more time with family than if we were residential.
In the end, we've finally decided where we want to "settle down." Which is that we don't want to. And for one very simple reason.
Living in one place means you're not living in every other place. And we can no longer bear the thought of not living in every other place.
The journey is the destination. - Mike
