The idea of “home”—whether as a particular place or group of people (or both)—evolves over time, and
it is always at the heart of how we understand ourselves. Our sense of wholeness, accomplishment, and
success is closely tied to our home. A frequent theme in great literature involves characters who may
journey great distances from home but who, literally and figuratively, carry reminders of people and
place as they attempt to maintain integrity, happiness, peace until they can return again.
