Being “at home” can mean different things to different people.
It can mean that we’re in the place where we live most of the time. That might be an apartment, house, mobile home, tent, tiny home, home-on-wheels, or some other dwelling place. We might describe the place where we live as a city or town, borough, county, territory, watershed, state, geographic region, or something else. These are all places where someone can be at home.
Being at home it isn’t always about being in a place. It can mean something less obvious, too. Being at home can be sense of comfort, a feeling of belonging that allows us to be at rest and ready to enjoy the moment we are experiencing. Sometimes we’re at home when we’re away from the place where we live. Sometimes we’re at home when we’re with a special person or animal companion, no matter where we are. Sometimes we’re at home when we’re doing a favorite activity, like watching birds.
