Where is home?

Does this question hit home? What do your children answer to this question?

More and more people worldwide are living in countries not considered their own. Writer Pico Iyer -- who himself has three or four “origins” -- meditates on the meaning of home, the joy of traveling and the serenity of standing still.

This TED Talk today by travel writer Pico Iyer really struck a cord with me. He described how many global nomads take “pieces of many different places” and put them together to form a sense of home that is a “stained glass whole”.

He then went on to explain: "For more and more of us, home has really less to do with a piece of soil than, you could say, with a piece of soul."

If you have a moment, this video is worth watching. Home is definitely work in progress in our case.
