Out of Place.

Sometimes you're happy neither here nor there. You are out of place when you feel at home, and at home you feel out of place. In the end, it doesn't matter very much. Not, at least, when you've already made the most essential decisions; decisions about things like not going away, not trying to save the world, not trying to become some great hero or saint. When you've decided to stay at home, even when you're out of place, there's nothing to do but be out of place.
