Home Sweet Where?

the every morning routine

the every morning routine

It is 9:03 am and the sun is finally burning off the fog outside the window of this home. The home I am keeping as if it is my own, even if it lasts only 21 days.

The morning fog was thick and lovely like a slathering of butter on your morning toast. A decadence you indulge only when you are the first one out of bed and no one can see. The fog does that.

It keeps your secrets. The sleepy bits of night that aren’t ready to be gone. Fog graces the day and lets you keep your night.

Three hours later on the day that we lose an hour, the sun has finally come up over the buildings across the street. I close my eyes to the bright rays that land with gentle warmth on my cheeks.

And I think of home. Which one it is. I use the term with abandon. I use I twice in one sentence referring to places not contained within one page of an atlas. Both are home. Keep the conversation going and the word home comes up again and the geography continues to change.

Again, I am at home away from home, wherever that may be.

    I love fog too. Almost as much as butter ;). You are right, we throw the word “home” around as if it was just some random noun, but it isn’t. Blessings and joy to you as you savor the sunshine, the fog, and Home, wherever it may be…
