On home- it is interesting. Perhaps it is because I have moved so much in the past couple years, but I definitely don't think of home as a physical place. I do think of it in physical attributes though. Home is most of all a smell and taste for me. I feel most at home when I am eating something that reminds me of places where I was happy.
For instance, tea and egg sandwiches remind me of England. They remind me of getting up early, and walking along the Thames with my friend Eleanor, as the sun was coming up.
For me, home is such a feeling and memory. I guess that is why I often decorate my room with stuff I have gotten from other places - i.e. postcards, pictures, etc.
