I participated in a little survey a former student proposed to aid her with her college senior thesis. It was about what reminds you of HOME. Here was my response.

Goofy things my dad did (and does), snow sledding up the road, running every day down the dirt road and beyond, playing badminton (trying to play without a partner, too), cross country skiing on our property, our malamutes who lived and howled outdoors, mowing the lawn, mom's garden, our dirt basement, insane annoying ...neighbors, family picnics, our tiny house with no room to get away from anyone, mom's cooking, making dinner starting at a young age because mom worked the 3-11 shift, getting up in the middle of the night to stoke the wood stove, bats in the house and mom freaking out, dad chopping wood, shoveling, great tunes on the turntable...

What would your response be?
