…what is home?…

…Nice for year-end [H/t HC] – yesterdays, today and tomorrow…

From the NYT Travel section comes a view of, and living of life, that we should all recognise. Linda Ronstadt takes its author, Lawrence Downes, on a brief journey, a road trip, through her life, Linda Ronstadt’s Borderland. Downes shares her observation, one that strikes home, no matter where we roam.

When Linda thinks of home — meaning where your soul inhabits the soil, wherever else your body might be — it’s not Southern California, the place forever associated with her professional life, as Queen of Rock in the land of Byrds and Stone Poneys and Eagles. Nor is it San Francisco, where she lives now.

And that soul takes us home at very predictable or even the unlikeliest moments.
