more thoughts on home…

February 3rd, 2010 at 21:03

Home, the new theme of the creative every day challenge is turning out to be a bigger challenge than I thought. I’m in a groove and so into painting and stone carving at the moment, I’m even thinking of getting back into sculptures. But it’s time to switch.
So now I’m thinking about home, what the word means and what it means to me. And I would like to tell you a little bit more about one of the things that springs to mind when I think of the word home and what my home can mean to other people.

I’ve lived in this country for 18 years. Occasionally people ask me if I go home much. And it trips me up, every single time. Eh? And then it dawns on me, these people mean the country I was born in and they are asking me if I travel back there much. For me home is here. I’ve lived here nearly all of my adult life. So then I usually laugh and say, no, I got married, it’s a life sentence… and then I usually leave it at that.
