There's No Place Like Home

Many of my former students are away from home for the first time when they left for college about 4 weeks ago.  It is fun to follow them through various media forums, and one of the prevalent topics I am seeing more of is being homesick.  According to wikipedia Homesickness is the distress or impairment caused by an actual or anticipated separation from the specific home environment or attachment to objects.

Homesickness can be associated with feelings of nostalgia, grief, depression and adjustment disorders, all of which can affect people psychologically and emotionally. Symptoms in homesickness may be emotional, cognitive or physical.  In extreme cases, physical health problems accompany the hallmark symptom of homesickness, which is preoccupying thoughts of home. Most people describe homesickness as a want or longing to be back home, continuously missing their parents, siblings, spouse, relatives, friends, pets and aspects of their familiar environments.

I took this shot of this house today, for one of my good friends who has mentioned a few times recently about their homesickness.  I thought it might cheer them up to see it again and I hope it helps to strengthen their resolve and allow them to refocus and manage the couple of weeks left until fall break.  September 29, 2011
