What is ‘PLACE’?  I sense a profound ‘quest’ within this question, which I want to explore here in the next few weeks and months. Some of my inquiry will focus on: 
  • what is my place? in my relationships, my family, my community
  • what makes a place alive and vibrant?
  • how does history, geography and climate shape place?
  • what is the ‘soul’ or energy of a place?
I moved across the country from Victoria to Guelph a year ago today, and am so aware of the complexity of a sense of place. What are your questions/perspectives about ‘place’ and placemaking?
