The Feeling of Home

Year after year a house will change to fit the mold of what we in the present believe a house should look like, but a home is not changed or renovated, it grows, with every new addition and loss, and there are no expectations of what a home should look like. There is no way to describe what a home looks like because a home is not a structure, it is a presence, an atmosphere.

A home is made up of the people and things that I love, who radiate the energy of home. It is almost magical, the shield that a home provides, shielding me from negative energy no matter what the exterior looks like.

The feeling of home is endless and lives past days, months and years, it is not measured by time, it is measured by love and happiness.

In conclusion, a home is its own atmosphere, not affected by the outside world.
