My HOME reflects where I’ve been and what’s going on at the present. It has been a haven, nest and launching pad.
I write about my kids leaving HOME. I write about them coming HOME from college or returning HOME for break. I write about my life since the kids left HOME.
I still feel at HOME on Easton despite the kids’ absence. Rituals continue. Memories and stories remain. Family and friends come and go. Belongings come and go. It is ever-changing and yet remains the same.
Consider the following quotes about HOME:
“HOME is where the heart is.”
