As innately curious beings, we spend the duration of our lives wandering. It also remains natural, however, to hope for a sense of stability. This can be found with a variety of things, namely physical places, or steady interpersonal relationships. Whichever it may be, when a strong, relaxing, connection is created, there forms a psychological space where the comforting energy of one's respite engulfs them. Such a place can be left and revisited, but remains dependent on each thinker to perceive and appreciate their own.
