365 Writing Prompts: There’s no place like home
If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, would you do it? Do you need a home base? what makes a place “home” to you?
No, I wouldn’t like to live a nomadic life if I had the opportunity.
Moving constantly changing locations,switching from one place to another, finding a place to live frequently, not knowing where I’ll rest or take a nap when I needed is not a very comforting feeling.
There’ll be a constant hassle of finding a temporary place to live, what to cook or eat,who are the people close by, are they friendly or unfriendly. If they spoke a language I did not understand would further complicate my problem.
I need a home base, I’d like to know my neighbors and have a good relationship with them. There are emergencies in our lives, like sudden illness, some of the appliances don’t work, we can get someone to take care of it.
If I’m sick I can call the doctor’s office and get an appointment to see my family physician, in contrast a nomadic life does not offer these privileges.
A home to me is a place where I have a bed to sleep at night. A place I can relax,watch TV, write my prompts, play with my pets, read a book, there are all kinds of activities I can keep myself entertained with.
