Flash Blog: Home

I like this picture of home in the palm of our hands, since a home is something built as much as it is something found.  We may feel at home in a certain place, but that sensation without fail boils down to those people still inhabiting that space, those that built it for you or with you, or those memories a loved one who had once shared that home has left behind. We could as easily feel at home encircled in the arms of a beloved or surrounded by a closely bonded group of friends.  

And occasionally, home is the place that waits to welcome us once we find our way back.

  1. Totally agree. . it's the people that make a home, who you can share with, relax with and just be yourself. Great take on the prompt. xx

    1. Thanks, Lizzie - people are, unlike places, not interchangeable.

  2. I couldn't agree more. Hence my post on why the house I grew up in is no longer my home. :D

    1. Exactly - "home" isn't defined by when or how long someone lived there. Thanks for commenting!

  4. Home is definitely a state of heart rather than a specific place. Great picture!
