- Dayton. Inside the city limits but with a working dairy farm a half-block across the street.
- Bloomington. On the Indiana University campus, and later at the edge of town.
- Binghamton. In the ‘hood, then on a hippie farm near the New York-Pennsylvania line.
- The yoga ashram. Out on a yoga farm in the Pocono mountains.
- Fostoria. In a loft downtown, over St. Vincent’s charity store, in what was once Ohio’s Great Black Swamp.
- Yakima, Washington. Including three years in an orchard.
- Warren, Ohio. We bought a lovely arts-and-crafts bungalow in an industrial city in economic collapse.
- Baltimore. Downtown in the trendy Bolton Hill neighborhood and then out in suburban Owings Mills.
- Manchester, New Hampshire. By the Merrimack River, then atop the tallest hill.
- Dover, New Hampshire. A mile from downtown. The longest I’ve lived in the same house, by the way.
And one other place that never really counted.
