Did ya pick a good place to hang your hat?

Zombyboy was discussin' his love/hate relationship with livin' in Denver and it reminded me that I ofter consider that most people really had little choice in where they live. They were born there or in some small town not too distant from the city in which they currently reside, or their job or career took them there. I moved here with a gaol to make my home here because I saw opportunity existed and a place where the community embraced me and made me feel welcome. I found a unique position, a place in the world. How many of ya'll actually put any thought into the geographic location where you currently reside?

I never actually wanted to be here in Houston, I followed my ex-husband down here ......... I think I would be happier in San Antonio or Austin ...

Hmmm...I moved out here because I knew I could get work that would pay enough to live on, plus it helped that my family was here. When I moved back to Pensacola, it was because I loved the area so much, but I couldn't make decent money. In 10 days or so, I'll be moving to MA, but only because my husband's there...it isn't someplace I'd be likely to live otherwise. I still dream of making it back to the Gulf Coast someday...

I wanted to move to Austin for about three years before I finally managed it. I've been here for 8 and still love this city. I'm not crazy about the hot as hell summers, but finally getting a car with an a/c helped that. If we ever move from Austin it will be based on finding another city we love hopefully!

I'm basically a vagrant. I've lived all over the states (and even in the back seat of my car for a while here in Denver) with no real thought to "home" until recently. I still don't think I've got the hang of it...
