Jimmy Smith ponders a notion of ‘home’


Lance camper roof (JulianneCrane) On an overcast day when the “wind is moaning through the live oaks … and the rain is tap tapping on the roof of our little abode,” Jimmy Smith writes:

“So much about this sabbatical, or walkabout, or vision quest … invites me deeply into the question of what the notion of ‘home’ is.

“In my past, some hurtling momentum carried me into and through most of the landscape I called my life. I seemed to be as much a witness as a participant in the whole affair. Having the opportunity to get old enough to have my reckless careen slow, gives me the terrifying opportunity to make studied choices.”
