Home is Really Where the Heart is.

     I was thinking about how things have changed over the years in my life.  I was thinking on the
idea that "Home is Where the Heart is", a concept that sort of just goes in one ear and out of the other, until you spend a few minutes thinking about it.

   When I lived in California, my passions were in the mountains, skiing in the winter and water skiing in the summer, but always in the mountains.   At that time I had mementos from the mountains and my decor was that of a mountain cabin.  Later when I moved to the Carolina's I fell in love with the Caribbean and my house was decorated with the souvenirs of the islands.  Today living on the island of Key West, where my heart really lives I spend my time doing things that keep me close to the water and nature of this place.

     The thing that I've found it really doesn't matter where you are,
as long as your passions are living
there with you, you're in a really good place.  It doesn't mean that you never want to go anywhere else, but it is the place that you want to be most of your time.  Today, living where I really want to be and living on a boat, all is great with the world.   When I get up til I spend my evenings on the aft deck watching the sun rise and set, my days are very rewarding.  I love to travel out, visiting as many Caribbean islands as I can, but after a week or so, I can't wait to get back to my home, because it is truly where my heart is.

This is Where my Heart is Today
