In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Home Turf.”
Just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, there is no place like home. The word is warm, cozy and inviting. It welcomes us at the end of the day, enveloping us and keeps us safe. Our most authentic selves are revealed though our secrets are safe.
A house is merely building materials, it becomes a home by what we keep inside, what we treasure, what is true in our hearts. It is authentic and reflects our self in how we feel in the world.
Describe your space and how you feel in this space conjures up something different for each person who honestly answers this question
For me, there is a lightness, beauty, love and warmth in my home. This is the home I created.
Twenty windows frame stunning views that inspire and provide a daily dose of awe. My husband, friend, confidante and love provides safety with a daily dose of humor and my cup overflows with love and respect. Our menagerie of pets include two cats and two dogs, their antics rival the most popular you tube video. Our library in the corner of our home with its comfy chair invites us to kick off our shoes and curl up with one of its many good books. We can choose between four decks or our three season porch where we can be more intimate with nature and marvel at the many animals that call our house their home too.
It has been a journey to get to this place in my life, at last, at long last, I am home.
