Shouting from my shed

When someone asks me where I’m from I always say, “I live near London but I’m from Yorkshire.” Yorkshire is my home. I’m very proud of that. But I haven’t lived in Yorkshire for more than half my life. Is that still home? If not, what does ‘home’ mean? I love Yorkshire but how well do I know it? When I lived here I took it for granted. (Don’t we all do that with the places we think we know best?) Going away has taught me to be curious. And now I want to get a better feel for, and appreciation of, the place I call home (but don’t live in). So far everything I have seen here has been for the first time: new places, new sights, new people – exploring, perhaps, without leaving home? #yorkshire #blog #goniceplacesdogoodthings #neverstopexploring #home
