Looking at the photos of the Fremont dinosaurs I am struck by how much they seem to belong where they are, and I thought that might make an interesting topic for this week’s travel theme. What does belonging mean? It could be a treasured possession that belongs to one person – like Winnie-the-Pooh belonged to Christopher Robin…
…or a park that belongs to a nation.
It could be a community that creates a sense of belonging…
… or just one special person.
It could be something so old it can’t help but belong…
…or a place you know so well it feels like home.
What does belonging mean to you? If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. – Aldo Leopold
I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. – Walt Whitman
