Despite the reasons why we end up in some dot on a map, it is always the people we share our time with that will define the place in our minds.
Cody Forest Doucette, 6 Portraits of Why We Travel | Matador Network
This is a great take-away quote from Cody’s piece about traveling, but I think this is true for every place we live.
Your condo may be in the best part of town with one of the nicest views, but if you have a cranky neighbour living beside you, or the nice elder that lives down the hall that always says, “Hello,” to you each morning, or the kids that always run down the hallways and never hold the elevator for you, may last longer in your memories than the physical space.
They are very minor events, but shared experiences are always more memorable than singular experiences, in my experience.
