The feeling of places

Places I have recently (sometimes disconcertingly) felt comfortable:

my house
my office
the theory lab
the doctor's office
the hospital
inside an MRI machine

Places I have recently felt uncomfortable:

meeting with my advisor
walking on crowded sidewalks
phone conversations with bureaucratic agencies
the hallway outside my office
any social situation with someone I've known for less than a year
my front porch
the grocery store

This post's theme people: random strangers who stop on the sidewalk to help the sad girl on crutches. They are rarer than I would ever have believed, but incredibly kind when they do occur in nature.
