Modern Love Emerging
(home as a cocoon)
Happy Sunday to you. I've been giving lots of thought to the idea of home as a cocoon and as a haven for transformation. And by home I don't necessarily mean four walls...I mean the hundreds of things that make up a home. The colorful cast of characters, the beautiful art, bits and pieces of days long gone, old quilts on beds, boxes of photographs, a crazy-all-over-the-map-recipe drawer, stories shared over and over. You know, the real things that make a house a home no matter where you are. I have a vision of the home as a snail, tortoise or hermit crab shell...always with us, protecting us, but allowing us to grow as we move about finding our way. Or as I mentioned earlier, as a cocoon from which we can emerge as a beautiful butterfly.
