As human beings, I wonder if there is a fundamental connection between our sense of belonging and our landscape.
We don’t see ourselves in abstract; neither do we live in the abstract.
We live in a place, which has multiple dimensions, not always predominantly concrete and physical.
And if it’s not a place where we sense we belong, we won’t put down roots. We won’t draw what we need, and we won’t give the fullness of what we can–our best selves.
Unconsciously we will hold something back if we’re not home.
Our places of belonging matter.
