True Arthur and Everyone,
There are many features and qualities that are inherent to this and
any other place, but what makes this region different than anywhere
else, to me, is this Region is 'Home' and no other place on earth can
substitute The North of Ansteorra as my Home.

Even though it is I, putting this out there for consideration...

Please ruminate on the word "HEARTH":

My opinion is it works on multiple levels and in many ways.
