As I write this I am sitting on a lovely covered porch perched over the Boardman River in Traverse City, Michigan. It is my home of the moment. It’s actually a coffee shop/cafe called Morsels. I recommend it for the atmosphere alone….
A home of the moment. This speaks of many things– place making at the table-top scale? Deep breathing and listening to birdsong and other’s conversations? A cool breeze in a patch of sunlight….
Once a dear friend told me when I was a tad forlorn about my place in the world, Alexis, you are your home! You embrace within you ALL the comfort, ease, grace, beauty, shelter, quiet, protection that the word ‘home’ embodies. These are all qualities that you express…in so expressing they are just bound to take form in your life. And so it is, even today, even at the scale of this tabletop. I am at home. Are you? At home in the world….
