In unsettled times, RVer Jimmy Smith continues exploring ‘What constitutes home’


SnowBackdoor(JulianneCrane)We’ve been “off the road” for about a month … arriving back in Eastern Washington the last week in March.

Since then, Jimmy and I seem to have slipped into a new phase of our RV lifestyle–that of house-pet sitters/property caretakers–while still pondering the possibility of acquiring a physical  ‘home’ base.

In today’s installment of his on-going essay, Jimmy Smith explores again “What constitutes home?”

He writes: “Such a fertile question. In our months of traveling I continued to mull this, be in conversations about it, and attempt to sleuth the answer.

“Some of the time I want to cry ‘uncle’ and cover my head and stay in the bed. At tender times I want to call myself a fool for setting out so late in life to reinvent myself one more time. I fall into doubt that there is any wisdom guiding my steps on this unrecognized road.”
