I'm thinking the ideal time to be in one place is probably 3 years, at most.
I could be a gypsy of sorts.
I don't take for granted the beauty of where I live, though. It's almost paradise. Today I had the most beautiful moment, which involved observing a big group of baby grebes swimming together on the lake. I was on a boat house, looking at them from above... and they could not see me. The visual, the sounds, the water, the birds diving down and swimming underwater just below me...what a privileged view! Time stopped...love when that happens. If you are into wildlife like we are, this place is a-mazing. There is not one time that we go out in Nature and don't see something really, really neat.
