    Hi Joe,

    What Lydia has said is correct. notice that if the particle begins with the letter "ל" it's "to a place", and when the particle begins with the letter "מ" it's "from a place". for example - "אני הולך לפה" - "i'm going here (meaning the person has moved from one place to another).
    "אני הולך מפה" - "i'm going away from here" (meaning the person is gonna leave the place where he is right now)

    Hope i've made it clear,
    Aviel
