I've always loved the idea of place, but I haven't always known it.
I was born in the Seattle area. Then over the course of my young life, moved to Southern California, Dallas, Italy, Kazakhstan, China, Salt Lake, DC, Beijing, Houston, and finally, Seattle. While I understand there are many people who have lived and traveled a great deal more than me, I have done enough moving for myself that I have come to appreciate the idea of place.
