Home sweet home, parents’ house, my castle and the walls that help.

A modern person changes 5 to 10 residences during the lifetime, usually using a few at a time, often in different countries and climate zones.
A countless number of renovations utterly wipe away traces of history, remote or recent, one’s own and somebody else’s.
The residence is a mirror of the inhabitant’s soul, but successful people invite the architect-designer-decorator to arrange the interior for them. In vogue, there could be exotics or high-tech, historicism or vintage – all this is made to order or purchased in special places.
Home sweet home is a bunch of appliances that chop-whip-fry-steam-warm up-cool down. They are designed in Europe, made in Asia, and, with their help, we prepare the food that has been familiar since childhood. But also the exotics, fusion or dishes of the molecular gastronomy.
The bedroom is still sacrosanct. It is believed that people love, conceive, give birth and die in their own bed. This is a literary cliche. They love and conceive in all sorts of places – best case scenario: on a romantic trip purchased in a travel agency. They give birth at a hospital. They die… well, let’s leave it at that.
The walls look like a castle less and less. They look like a screen. In order for them to help, it is recommended to switch the channel. But, as a rule, it does not help.
A successful person lives in the coordinates: taxi-airport-hotel. They are all different, and they are all somebody else’s. The most enviable “one’s own” is a yacht or a private plane. It seems, the land has no hold anymore.
A really successful person could buy a castle in Europe. Or an island in the Pacific Ocean. History or lack thereof.
Between these poles of success, there are tens of thousands square miles of bedroom communities.
Something needs to be done about that.
