For this week’s Weekly Writing Challenge the topic is Map it Out. When we think of Google Maps or Google Earth it often invokes images of exotic places or foreign countries. But as a proud homebody the Google Earth application provides a pretty picture of my residences since birth. As the map below illustrates, I’ve not strayed any farther than a nine-iron into the wind since coming home from the hospital as a baby.
People are often surprised when they learn of my penchant for proximity, but I have all I need close at hand. I think it is best summed up by the Dr. Sheldon Cooper character in an episode of The Big Bang Theory when he said:
Penny: Okay, that’s fine, but let’s try and get you out of your comfort zone.
Sheldon: Why would we want to do that? It’s called the comfort zone for a reason.
