"Home is where the heart is."
That is to say: home is the answer to the question, "where would you rather be right now?"
I've heard it said that home is where they can't turn you away.
Home is beyond location, I think. There's something to be said for familiarity, and a place full of memories. However, more than anything, home is where you belong without question.
"It feels like heaven's so far away."
A while ago, Lenny loaned me a book by Eileen Root called Hawaiian Names...English Names. Helpful, since I decided that the elves in the roleplaying universe I created speak a language reminiscent of Hawaiian. The book has a section with the origins of various names.
The name Brian is from Gaelic, and means "strong and mighty leader." The name Nathaniel is from the Hebrew for "a gift, or gift from God."
Maybe on my good days. My really good days.
