The theme/word for May's Being Creative is "Home"....
Home is where the heart is they say....
as you can see below, home is where quite a lot is in my wierd little world.
I can't really say I've live a whole bunch of places as compared to some.... but I remember my Mother asking each time we did move, "Is it Home yet?"....
A good question of course, it takes a moment to become one with a new house. You have to get comfortable with the place, work thru it's quirks ~ you and your place of dwelling have to get to know each other a bit.
Once you do, it can become home.
It may be a tiny trailer, a rented apartment, or even a gutted sailboat on dry land... you never know.
Home is where you are welcome to be yourself and you feel safe;
or you can feel sorry for yourself quietly, or you can leap about with wild abandon.
It isn't supposed to be about "things" ~ as they say things can be replaced.... but at least in my case "things", including but not limited to, books are part of what makes it home. Too many books, too many craft supplies, too many plants, too many animals; it's how I know I'm home. Some peoples houses are spotless and echo from the silence and lack of "things".... that makes me uncomfortable.
In our house, you just never know what you'll find in the tub... If you were to thumb back thru the posts I bet you could find quite a few species who have graced it's inside. All I can say is it's different at our home... and it's not for just anyone ~ and I like it that way.
A hot cup of tea, a new magazine and good sturdy cat that doesn't move around much to hold it up.
