When writing of Place, consider various meanings of the term “Location”

I think writing of place should explore location in as many senses of the word as possible.

Geographic location: the urban, the landscape, with the entrance of wildlife and domestic animals if accurate.

Location in time: beginnings, endings, in-betweens, and memory’s effect in urging recontextualizing.

Location relative to another person: understandings and misperceptions, intimacies and unknowns, sharings possible, sharings impossible, givings, receivings, reassessments of self, etc.

Cultural location: how people in the culture relate to each other and to their environment and what issues are patterns for them.

Cognitive location: the conscious and subconscious, linear and lateral connections between moments, awareness and meta-awareness, living-in-moment and slipping into nostalgia or imagination, images fueled by empathy or sympathy, assessing where an other fits in the conscious and subconscious, etc.

Location of self: how identity alters in context and relations.

Historic location: local, regional, national, and global histories relative to this location.

Some types of location may be more explored than others, but each of these types plays a part.

The ability and inability of language to express these locations is yet another issue.

Traveling and encountering a new place is not a one-dimensional relation of eyes reaching out to landscape.  No—only some of what is reached for returns to the agent; some goes by unperceived.  Next, the mind assesses the data, storing it in categories of relation which the agent uses in future observing (which is always happening/being attempted).  (Really, what I am talking about here is the issue of idea empiricism.)

What are other concerns do you have when writing of place?  What does “location” mean to you?
