"Home! And this is my room - and you are all here! And I'm not going to leave here ever again, because I love you all! And...Oh, Auntie Em, there's no place like home!"
- Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz
Perhaps it's Hurricane Fay and thinking about friends in Florida, forced to escape the impending storm, that sent us back to this quote but, whether you escape on your own impetus or are forced to escape, there's nothing like the feeling that overtakes you in that first moment -- when you put your bags down, take a good look around and see the old familiar things -- to make you appreciate being home.
What about you? Are you glad to be home after a trip or could you happily live out of suitcase for the rest of your life?
