the feeling of home.

Today I am thinking about home.

What does Home mean?

On the surface home is physical space–a residence in which people live. Home is a building. Home is a place, with a mailing address and a spot on a map.

It is a place where people live and store things.

Where you display your collections and your junk.

It is a place that you maintain: fixing, repairing, renovating, and decorating.

It is also a metaphorical space– a place of refuge. A place where a person can truly be themselves. Often referred to as:

Feeling at home: familiarity, comfort, and belonging.

It is place where people feel safe.

It is the center in which people base their daily lives.

it is being completely comfortable with the one person you share this feeling with.

it is being completely yourself.

it is a place where your deepest feelings, thoughts and desires are disclosed.

it is a place of creativity.

it is having a dog that looses his mind when you walk in the door.

it is a place of sharing with friends and family.

It is the best place in the whole entire world.
