Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

There are so many ways to illustrate home and much of this blog is devoted to that context.  I’ve written of home in terms of loved ones,  physical places, and states of mind.

At its most basic, home is a sanctuary. Today I”ll show you local places and events where the welcome mat is always out and makes me feel at home:

“What we call a home is merely any place that succeeds in making more consistently available to us the important truths which the wider world ignores, or which our distracted and irresolute selves have trouble holding onto.”
