A home

It is reported that, 
upon being named the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers,
Chuck Noll was asked why he thought he could
reverse the team’s losing ways.
Noll responded calmly 
and carefully that losing
or winning
is not a matter of geography.
Home is as much a state of being,
a feeling of belonging
as it is a place, a geographical location.
The Trail is home.
But there are places that serve as home to us.
Because of who is there or who has been there,
because of what we have experienced there,
they have a hold on us; they are home.
Sometimes the trail Trail leads to such places;
sometimes the Trail leads home.
Or at least to one
of several homes.
