Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There seems to be an interesting mix here.  Uprooted and replanted successfully; rooted but restless; uprooted and flung on the far winds...and some rooted and happy in their original communities...(?  Not quite sure who that would be...but I'm sure we have contributors who fit that description...I could be wrong...)

(Me, I'm happily uprooted from where I spent my formative years, but now live (after a roundabout wavy line strange shape path) only 26 miles down the road, so I have a lot of place recognition through time around me--which I enjoy and think is useful--nd contacts going back and out and across in strange temporal/physical directions.  An ET eg, melo and eternalcityblues are in Italy (where I lived in the early 90s)--but neither grew up there (correct me if I'm wrong) and so I have (potential) connections there...whereas I've never been to the U.S., unlike a lot of contributors who have either lived there, visited for often extended periods, or are residents or citizens...a strange mix we have!  Vive la polyphony!  (Hat tip to rememberinggiap.)
