Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Home is where the heart is…

Finally the long war ends, taking a toll on humanity. The brave soldier, eagerly looks forward to come back to the security of his home.

Battling a long illness successfully, the healthy man just wants to return to the comfort of home.

After the initial thrill of staying on his own at the hostel, the student feels homesick, missing his mom’s food.

A professional working in another city, lonely, wants to return to the love of his family back home.

A traveller who is on the road for a while, longs to get back to the warmth of his home.

Home may connote different things to people. It is an extension of their personality. It leaves a trail of their essence and scents. The comfort and warmth a home exudes is hard to beat. Be it a palatial abode or a small dwelling, each home is dear to those living there.

A binding foundation

    This is beautiful. No many how many places we go, how lavish and comfortable they are. We always long for our home.

      So true. When I am on a holiday, staying in the best of hotels, after the initial euphoria, I always long to get back home. 💙
