Someone said “Home is where the heart is.” Meaning People long to be at home. Your home is whatever place you long to be.
I feel in our times, to feel rooted is rare.
I look back a decade of my own life and feel “Home is where the work is”! – is the current expression of our times. I look around and I’m not the only one – moving to places for work. Late 20s or early 30s, late 30s or early 40s – people are living a kind of contemporary bachelor life ; married, unmarried, having kids, having families – in short, long distant family lives!
Somewhere I read “Bachelors… These mysterious characters since ancient times attract the attention of mankind, or rather, the best part of it. And that is legitimate, because they are the only ones who find strength to resist all-marriageable instinct requiring the birds must nest, the beasts – digging burrows, and human – expect of a family.”
Other thing follows is Living Classy. Young, Fashionable and Undoubted. The new spirit of our times, thinking first impression is everything; stylish yet comfortable environment with as many amenities as they can get. That sounds like a hotel to me! Living everyday life in a hotel or a resort style setting, for days and months and sometimes years. Architects talk about creating micro-climate; and here we create micro-homes, a fully equipped nests I call it. The only difference from “home” is – here we live alone. Wonder where the bluetooth generation or so called Generation Z is going to end up or rise – a constant journey so far, as it seems.
