What Others Have Said

  1. I don’t feel at home until I can bake and cook in a kitchen wherever I am.

  2. A place in the community – job, friends, church, school.

  3. Freedom to explore miles from home, trust in strangers, variety of friendships

  4. I feel at home when I am with my wife having friends over or simply the events of the day. I doubt there is anything like going to bed with or waking up next to one’s partner. That is home.


    The aroma of fresh cookies filled our cosy yellow home
    With Magnificent Chocolate Chips so much like Mom used to make,
    that love was in the air
    Vases adorned the table with roses and white lillies
    Fresh and clean, vivid as only the present can be
    Music wafted in from every corner
    Lush piano bar music that dripped with sultry sounds
    hinting of quieter times and hidden memories
    Flickering at the hearth a warm and inviting fire,
    blazing enough to warm the soul and toes
    In that glow, the first kiss through the door was heaven on earth,
    a blessing and a recompense for everything
    that had ever come before or could possibly transpire
    until the end of days

    1. Thank you! What a beautiful description of home – I can picture you and your wife there! Lovely collection of images. Thanks for sharing and for viewing the site.
