People and Their Places

Hello, dear readers. I would like to introduce to you a new topic that has piqued my interest recently. People and their places. We all have one, that “place” we love that makes us feel like the better version of ourselves or makes us feel safe or is it simply a place of easy repose, whatever that may be for each of us. And that “place” is unique to each of us. It may not be located in our homes. But I ask, why is this place so significant, and how can we discuss this intangible idea that’s more of a wordless sensory experience? Isn't the sensory experience explanation enough without needing words to define it? Not everyone associates the same feelings with the same sensory experiences, nor does an environment evoke the same, That area of thought leads me to another of my favorite topics of discussion: synesthesia. The curiously genius condition in which one type of stimulation arouses the sensation of another, as when the hearing of a sound produces the visualization of a color. But I digress.
