Defining Home in 140 Characters or Less: The Road Home in Paperback!

The Road Home in paperback

With The Road Home just out in paperback, we asked people to define “Home” in tweet-able sized portions.

We quickly ran out of paperbacks to give away, but you can order them from wherever books are sold, or by following this link.

There were a lot of profound answers, not many with a sense of humor, but that’s ok.
Here are just a few of the responses we received:

“Feet find ground, heart space flourishes, popcorn.”
-Lisa, New York

“When you can’t hold on any more,
when you’ve white-knuckled it for far too long,
letting go feels like coming home.”

“The place we keep returning to.”
-Frank, Dublin, Ireland 

“It’s not where you live but how you choose to live!”

“Home is the right attitude that you hold in your heart, not an actual place found on a map.”
