Home for or from the Holidays

Just exactly what does the word home mean? I could look it up but I don't think I'd be satisfied with the definition. I don't know where my home is anymore.

This summer I had the strange experience of going to visit my family home and being intensely homesick for for Hong Kong at the same time. Makes me wonder where I am really from. Actually I was glad to see people I hadn't seen in nearly a decade but missed the cramped flat and steamy weather in Hong Kong. I almost wept through parts of Alabama. It is, contrary to what Hollywood movies portray, a beautiful place. I found my self longing to move back to a small house on some land. But, I was excited to land at Chek-Lap Kok and ride the bus home to Causeway Bay.

I feel like a hydroponic plant. I have no roots
