As I turned onto the highway heading out of town, which is just a couple of blocks from my new house, a thought occurred to me: Since I've been old enough to select my homes, I've always lived right by an easy route to get out of Dodge. Whether it was a mile from the turnpike or a block from a train station, I've had easy access to transportation.
What does that say about me?
Am I unwilling to commit? Do I simply like to travel? Am I always looking for an escape?
I think it sounds like a great way to develop a character.
