Working and Living
This is a question. I know where I stand on this question. My mind is made upon it. It is a question for readers to contemplate. It is sort of a follow-up on the last two posts. The question is do you want to base where you live on where you work or base where you work on where you live?
In this world today it is a much more complicated question than it was 100 years ago. Work is not always available in a particular place.To be honest,that isn't a new problem. People have relocated looking for a better life for centuries. But more recently we have come into the phenomenon of transfers and promotions leading people to move across the country for a job. And with it comes the challenge of building a home in the new place. That leaves us with the question of exactly what home is. And that is the question each of us must answer for ourselves
After seeing a section of I-85 in Atlanta collapse into a blazing inferno separating thousands of commuters from their homes and sending drivers scurrying for alternate routes, this question is one worth asking. Commuting is but one of many issues we must sift through to reach the decision to this question. Sending kids to school, social lives, friends and family, and the stage of life we find ourselves in at the time, allow these help factor into that decision.

This is a no-brainer. Like it or not, except for a handful of people born into a family business (or become a trust-fund baby), we live in a time when you go where the work is available.
