The idea of home to me is the experience of belonging. For me, it actually has more to do with people than a place. I love being with people I feel “at home” with. A place also has personal importance: the feel, smell, sights, and sounds are all powerful things that jog our memory and tug at the longings of our hearts. As 2014 is beginning to unfold, I’m considering, asking what my part is in being “at home” with people and how that might look for me in my community this year. Here a two more entries from the “Home” series in my moleskine journal.
“Near or Far – we all want a place to call home – where we belong.”
