31 Days of Free Writing and today’s topic is ‘Home’
Home is Sanctuary, where relaxation, happiness and contentment reign supreme, or what many of us aspire to.
It isn’t always like that but we cling to this ideal as essential as oxygen.
Home can be the site of domestic violence, home can be a country plagued by war.
Home can be riddled with financial woes or emotional worries.
Home can be warm and loving and a place to be your real self, without any hats.
Home can be children running and giggling, playing without care, and later a gaggle of electronic devices with humans attached! Home can be elderly parents reminiscing in front of the tele about the good ‘ol days, knitting or doing crosswords.
Home is a garden with green grass and lush plants and flowers, a swimming pool.
Home is memories good and bad.
Home is in the land down under, yet I went HOME when I returned to Denmark!
Is home one place?
Home is wherever the heart is,
home is sacred.
More to come tomorrow. At the moment, I am finding five minutes of unedited free writing quite difficult. Perhaps this is a good thing?
