Being here

The house I saw today — where I hope to be able to move to — is at almost the same degree of latitude as my current abode.

Almost is relative. I love maps. So I can tell you now that the two town centres (as opposed to actual locations of the relative dwellings) are separated by 0°2’38” latitude (that’s 0 degrees, 2 minutes and 38 seconds).

The distance that miniscule difference in latitude represents equates to 3.026894 miles, or 4.871314 kilometres.

But when someone calls me and says, “Where are you?”, I simply answer, “I am here”.
