Dear Home

"I'm headed home
Yeah, but I'm not so sure
That home is a place
You can still get to by train"

Dear Home,

For a while, I was swept up in the moment, and had lost you. I was in another place, feeling as though I had been there my whole life. I had to remind myself I had a home, a family, another group of friends. Eight months I have been gone from all that; eight long months. And now I am back, and it's as if everything was put on pause for my absence. Sure there are small changes- a new haircut, a different picture in the frame. But nothing major. It's nice to know that no matter how much I change, there is always a place I can go to that never will. You are my foundation, my identity. Thank you for keeping me grounded.

Love,
Faith

  2. Reminds me of the final of the Wizard of Oz. Reassuring to know that you have a 'home' even if you may be bringing your own changes to it.

  6. Your writing is beautiful. I can relate to this greatly. After moving to NY, it almost seemed as if home didn't exist, or rather that I wasn't sure where home was exactly.

    Have a great day!

  7. Love this post. Home, whatever one's definition may be, it's amazing how it's this one constant in our lives we can return to and feel safe, loved and comfortable. :)

  8. Being yourself, being safe, being happy, being well-fed, being wanted, being missed, being lazy, being crazy - all synonyms for home...

    Lovely post..
