Heh. With summer still lingering in Texas I'm feeling pulled toward somewhere were it drops below 80 at night.
You may enjoy a trip to Michigan then.  Last night it was 36 and today we should hit the mid 60s.  It's refreshing to sleep under a thick quilt.  I don't mind the cold until it goes below 30 - then I'm miserable.

What I love about Santa Fe and Albuquerque is that they have four seasons.  They even get snow, but the temps are rarely extreme.  The summer heat is tolerable and it cools off nicely every evening and the snow rarely lasts more than a few days.  Yes, I must get to New Mexico at some point!

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?

North Dakota or New Hampshire. I love the snow and cold. Im more in tune with my senses and magic when Im surrounded by snow. It wouldn't have much effect on my religious life. I'm solitary and used to not having anyone around like me.

Boston.  I also like the cold, but I'm partial to big, sophisticated cities that act as melting pots and don't resist ideas.  Boston also has a great early music scene, with plenty of concerts.  My wife and I travel up there several times a year to take them in, and we usually hit the interfaith bookstores at the same time.  Too bad it's one of the most expensive places to live in the US!

I would live in the Avalon of Marion Zimmer Bradley. I would like to live as a part of the sort of religiously-based community that she describes and I find the faith to be one I could ally mydelf to if I had such a context.

Me too, lol.  It would be so nice to emerge oneself in religious and spiritual study...alas...

I would like to live in Ireland or at least visit--someday.  In US, I wouldn't mind living in Arizona, Colorado, Boston, San Franscisco, Maine.  I'll live restlessly for most of my life.

It's always a good idea to expand one's horizons and check out new places.  Find the time, or make the time, and do it.  You'll treasure it forever.

My wife and I have gone overseas several times, cheaping it (for the most part) in Hungary.  No particular reason, at first: it was just a relatively untouristed location, with a lot of history and culture.  We came to really enjoy it--the folk music, the museums, the crafts, the arts, the grave friendliness of the people.  We're figuring to go back again next fall, and I'm finally trying to pick up the language, which is a mind-wrenching one.  I suppose I could and would live in the outskirts of Budapest if I could find a nice house, and there's quite a small but enthusiastic ex-pat community, there.  But these days it's become increasingly expensive.

I would love to move back to Corpus Christi, TX. I lived there, on and off, for six years and I loved it. Yes, it had it's terrible times and it had it's great times. However, I definitely wouldn't have to shovel anything off my driveway when I want to leave in the middle of December! The effect that the move would have on my religious life would only be in getting supplies. Since it's the deep south and incredibly Baptist, there are hardly any herb shops and any "new age" shop that opens is run off in a year or less. I would have to order supplies mainly online, which can be very expensive, but I did it before, so...

I would probably choose Japan. For some reason, even as a child the country, people, language and culture intrigues me. I don't know, the ancient temples, the older cities, the scenery, the cultural ideas and so on.

But of course the "old" Japan is pretty much no longer but even the new cities and such seem interesting and oddly alluring.

I don't think it would have any effect on my "religious" life though because I don't have one.

in order of preference- Isle of Mann, Maine, a canalboat in England, and pacific northwest- oregon and up.
i'd go to isle of mann for religious reasons, mostly (beyond the beauty of the place). for maine and the Pacific NW, it would be for the GREEN. it is GREEN there, it SNOWS and it RAINS. i am heartily tired of living in a highly fertile but incredibly brown (in the summer) area. the only thing i'd miss would be the ability to grow just about anything i please, but i think i can work around that. the canalboat is just cool ^_^

i think, that as long as i could get to a private area with sea access and/or nice big trees, my religious life would improve. it kinda hard to "hear" the gods that i work with when almost all the forests have been chopped down long ago, and the waterways long since tamed and stolen, i mean, diverted to another part of the state.

Iceland. I have been there once and I fell in love with the country. That land has power, because it is always changing, fire and ice.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live?

I'd like to live in a lot of places. I actually really like where I am, although I would also love to move to Oregon. However, I'm a huge sports fan (especially hockey) and I'm just not going to get that up there. But the weather is much nicer there, and it's so green and pretty and rainy. I love rain. But I hear they don't have thunderstorms all that often. I would miss that. I do love the crazy Colorado weather, but I just can't stand the heat. British Colombia is another place I'd like to go. It's got some of the same features as Oregon, plus they have hockey. But I hate the Canucks. But at least it probably wouldn't be too hard for me to find a rec league to play in.

Germany would be nice. I've only been to Bavaria, but it was awesome. I had three weeks in Europe and I easily could have spent it all there. But again, I'd hate to be so far away from my hockey. Of course, I don't have anything against any of the DEL teams, so I could just be a fan of one of those.

Other countries I think would be awesome to live in would be Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Faroe Islands. Sweden and Finland are big hockey countries which would work for me, but all those countries are just so beautiful. Of course, I might be okay just visiting them, and if I could live in one of them, the others wouldn't be all that far away.

My religion wouldn't be affected too much. Except hockey, which is like a religion to me. But as long as I could find a place to play and a team to love, I would probably be okay.

r religious life?

I'd move back to Nottingham, UK. I've spent a wonderful year there as an exchange student in 2008/09, so there are a lot of memories attached to the place. The city is large enough to go on a shopping spree, but not too large to get lost in, so just the way I like it. And buses run so much more conveniently than in Germany. 

My religious life would be strongly affected, I guess. From what I've heard, the East Midlands have quite a pagan community going, so I could finally up and meet like-minded people - here in my area of Germany, you hardly find other pagans, much less a pagan pub moot or something along those lines (though maybe I have only looked in the wrong places so far). Also I think craft supplies would be much easier to get *thinks of the lovely chalice I bought in Bath* And for once, I wouldn't have to translate everything when I go and get supplies for herbal or other spells  Wink

If not Nottingham, I'd go live in Cork, because I feel truly at peace there, or back in my hometown. However I wonder how long I could actually stay there without me going crazy of boredom... we've got beautiful woods and nature reserves, but we don't have a cinema, a proper local pub, etc.
