Had the pleasure of listening to and meeting author Scott Russel Sanders last night. He was discussing his book “Staying Put” which challenges the reader to consider the value of committing to live in a particular place for a long period of time (an initmate sense of community & belonging for example). His premise is that A) our culture doesn’t emphasize this anymore and B) challenges have evolved which didn’t exist when people lived long periods of their lives in one place.
It got me thinking about the fact that I’ve now lived in Idaho longer (almost 20 years) than anywhere else in my life.
I’ve been fortunate to have travelled extensively. I’ve lived in 4 major cities, spent time in all 50 States and visited over 70 countries, but I’m always so grateful to come home to Boise. I’ve really enjoyed learning about and exploring where I live but more than anything, I love the feeling of being part of my community; something I didn’t get to experience living in large cities or moving around when I was younger.
