Today I’m answering three questions from “A Guy Called Bloke” aka Rory .
1] Which term do you personally prefer for you ‘Home is where l hang my hat or home is where my heart is?”
I am more of a home is where my heart is kind of person. To me that means having a strong connection with a place while the other term suggests that you can be at home anywhere.
2] Do you consider where you are living now your true home or ar you still far, far from home?
I do consider Tasmania my true home even though I’ve lived here less than 20 years. I began my life in England but left there as a child and although I feel a connection and consider my British roots important Australia has always been home for me. I spent most of my life living in South Australia and I was happy there until the last few years when a changing environment started to make me wish for something else. The first time that I visited Tasmania I knew that it was a place that I wanted to live someday.
3] Do you think the days when families used to live close to each other and held closer tight knit communities are still present or long gone?
I think it is still present for many, especially in rural areas. In the Huon Valley where I lived for many years after coming to Tasmania families are close and there is great community spirit. People always rally round to help anyone in trouble.
