Her house has an open air allure A quiet place to relax and chill

 

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey. —Tad Williams

Sometimes home is a safe haven people use to separate themselves from the stresses of their jobs . A plae to enjoy a quiet cigarette, chat with friends online and momentarily chill out from the demnds of the job.

We all tend to define a home as a physical structure composed of four walls and a roof. It suggests permanence and a place one can return to time and again to protect oneself against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that life hurls our way.

Many times home is a concept that we carry around with us in our hearts and minds as we are at work performing a necessary task that will pay the bills, guarantee we have a roof over our heads and food, clothing and shelter for our family.

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing

  1. So agree with that. Home is more than just a physical place. It’s embedded in the relationships around us – it’s build constantly and every day. Sometimes when I am not at my permanent address, I like to look at the sky at night and see the stars, knowing that all of us around the world see the same sky wherever we are.

  2. Very true Gerry, I have lived in many physically different “homes” throughout my life, but it is what we perceive as “home” in our heads that really matters. 🙂

    • You are right again Amanda. Our mental images of what home should be are culturally contrived and controlled. The “home” we imagine inside our heads is all that ever really matters. Thanks for writing. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! 🙂
