   Possibly, although I'd also say that it's a sign of maturity to be able to
find contentment and peace in your own backyard -- if there's something you
can't find at home then you probably won't find it abroad, either.  "Teach
us to sit still".  The people whose cultures we find interesting and
attractive to begin with are most often themselves strongly rooted in one
place.
