The Meaning of Home

What is it, is it a house or is it a place or is it a shelter to party and play?
For us it’s nothing you could imagine… it’s nothing but a place of magic. When you leave your home your body goes but your heart remains at home…..
What about homeless people, where is their home? Is it in their heart, or is it on the streets? Or maybe it is all the memories they hold. Do they feel more at home on the streets when they see warm smiles towards them, or when a stranger is kind to them, or when someone shares a warm meal…..?

For me home is a safe place where I can be myself, be loved, be with my family.
