Home (Stories on a Theme – “Family”)

Home is a place from which you can launch yourself and your ideas into the world.

It’s a safe space. It’s your space. Every wall, every floor, everything in it is all yours. You control your space, you control your life.

It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small home. It doesn’t matter if it’s made out of bricks and mortar or a place or a person.

Home is more than all of those things. Its your stamp on the world and the place you can retreat to when the world is violent and harsh.

Home is here, with your family. Your family, the family you’ve created and kept and curated over the years. It’s your pets, it’s your friends, it’s your lovers, it’s your siblings, your parents, anyone.

And it’s all yours.
