Wait, you live in Vancouver, WA?!?  So do I.  Wow, small world.  Didn't think anyone here was from here but me. 
The internet must be a very small world to fit into these little boxes, right?  Grin  Yes, I do live on the North end of the 'Couve.  For now.  The countdown has begun though.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live? (Please be fairly specific.)  Why there? What effect, if any, would this have on your religious life?

If I could live anywhere, it would be on a fairly large piece of property (we're talking at least 80 acres here) in the Naches/Tieton area of Washington state. I would proceed to wall it off (gotta be at least 8 feet high Wink ) from the outside world; if I don't want you there, you're not getting in! I would have room for my animals, not just dogs and cats but goats, sheep, chickens, a few cows, etc; room for my sister Ana and her kids; room for a massive garden area (the one here is small compared to what I want to have eventually), and a good-sized, but not humongous, residence for myself and my family. I'd also have a rather large "commons" area that has a summer kitchen and my business office.

As for why someplace like this, it's because I'm rapidly becoming more and more disenchanted with the human race and I've GOT to start thinking about growing enough food to provide for myself, my son and our numerous critters. I can no longer afford to purchase everything that we need for ourselves and our critters so I've got to raise it myself. This is exactly why I'm going to school for my degree in agribusiness starting in September, too.

The whole idea behind this place of mine is for me to be able to have the place I want so that I can shut out the world at the end of the day if I so choose. If I want the world, I'll invite the world. If not, it can stay out. Wink

My place of residence will have absolutely no bearing on my religious practice, other than to, perhaps, help strengthen it. Wink

I have been to Alaska on vacation, and I felt the separation from civilization to be quite stilling and awe-inspiring. The landscape, while wild and very daunting in its "hugeness" I had a very homey feeling the whole time I was there. I had close encounters with a bear and a pack of timber wolves, and I was reminded that nature still rules this planet no matter how removed from her we might seem in our cities and towns.
So my answer would have to be Alaska, probably in the remote, mountainous Eastern portion of the state.

I would live in a small rural farming town of less than 250 people, in a second floor, one room apartment, above a pub, somewhere in Ireland.

I could spend years talking to, and getting to know the locals.

Effect...None whatsoever.

Liverpool, England or Kyoto, Japan.

Mainly because my best friend is FROM Liverpool, and I have another friend living near Liverpool. And Kyoto, well, said best friend is currently residing there. And it's a wonderful place to be. Though it would have little, or no, impact on my religious life at all.

Egypt without a shadow of a doubt. I love that place. I have been 5 times so far and am going again in December. The country is great, the people are wonderful, and it 'feels' like I belong there.

Does anyone else get that feeling? The first time that you go somewhere and it immediately feels like you are home?

Yes, New Mexico.  As soon as I saw the desert from the plane I knew I belonged there.  As soon as we drove out of the airport and down the dusty highway, I felt like I belonged there.

There is really only one place that I want to live - and thats wherever my family lives. They really are the most important thing to me - "home is where the heart is" type thing.  (I don't have to live in their backyard, so to speak.  I do want to be close by though.)

Where I select to live has absolutely no influence on my beliefs or lack thereof.

New Mexico has the same magic on me. One of my favorite places on the planet is White Sands. I also adore Colorado, and though I've never visited, New Zealand.

But currently, New Mexico is the environment I'm really drawn to. I'm working on a way to live in Santa Fe or Taos, and be a crazy hermit writer. Who knows, I may find myself in New Zealand too. One can be a crazy hermit writer just about anywhere after all...

Santa Fe is expensive, but you can find some lovely places on the outskirts of town.  Albuquerque is really nice over by the Old Town area too.  Santa Fe could definitely inspire a hermit writer.  With winter on it's way to Michigan I again feel pulled toward the desert.

    The first place that comes to mind is the Scottish Highlands or one of the islands in the Hebrides.  It is not realistic that it will happen, so I am focusing on the areas around Ashville NC and Noxville TN.  Since I am approaching a time of at least partial retirement and no family obligations, a move there might be possible in a few years.   Why:  Being primarily Scottish Celt in my beliefs,  Scotland would be the ideal place.  As for the mountains:  I am looking for a quite rural area, maybe to do a bit of farming and the climate wouldn't be bad. There seems to be a good amount of positive energy in the mountains, and I like the history of the area.  I also have an interest in "Mountain Witchcraft".   I can't seem to find much on it but possibly by living there I could.

I'm not sure about a location, but anywhere that I can have a comfortable house and lots of land. My ideal is to one day have a large place with a few barns and stables so I can foster/rehabilitate abused animals, and be able to grow the food to feed them, my potential family, and myself, so...pretty much wherever I'd be able to reasonably do that.
And no, it wouldn't change my religious/spiritual path.

Heh. With summer still lingering in Texas I'm feeling pulled toward somewhere were it drops below 80 at night.
