Haiku My Heart–Home Making…

Flotsam and jetsam

Of life gathered in altars

Saying I am here.

Yesterday, while continuing the unpacking process, I finally reached the point where my real stuff, the stuff I love, that I have chosen, that I have gathered along the way,

was emerging from the piles of paper

and

finding new homes in my new home.

I recognized the feeling of placing my stuff just so,

creating little altars everywhere,

of marking the spot

with my very own hand, eye, and heart.

Made me feel like I am here now.

Made me feel at home.

Interesting to acknowledge, appreciate and in fact love,

the fact that

the creation of a home that reflects bits of who I am,

where I have come from,

what I love,

is

Art

from my Heart.

 

Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones!

I love this term...creating little altars everywhere (a book too I know) but in this context I adore the image in my head.

happy weekend!

Amazing...these little altars of being...all over your home!

isn't that the truth…that our art, our little and large pieces of what our hearts have gathered along the smooth and sometimes rocky paths of our journeys , is what makes our homes feel like home….

so happy that your heart is feeling safe and comfortable after the stress of the move…xoxo

the best part of moving is...opening boxes of things that say YOU....everything has been edited and now you can play and move things around, it is all the art of life and so much fun. And I will look forward to seeing how you will handle a florida winter...that will be the cake!
i love that you are sharing this journey with us, HAPPY times!
