Wednesday Withnessing: Home


Dear Home, 

I enjoy an adventure now and then, a change of landscape is good for my inner muse. I suppose.  But it isn't easy for my sensitive soul that prefers routine and the comforts of home.  It seems people leave home to get away, to escape their lives, to remember themselves. But I never need to leave to know who I am. I already realize how much I adore the quiet within your walls, the safety beyond your turquoise door, the warmth of your sunlit rooms, the cozy nooks and morning views. You are my favorite place to retreat— my sanctuary, my refuge from the noise. Perhaps I leave you so that I can return and remember how I prefer to stay home.
