homes are not only

houses but those

who comfort you,

love you, create

just the right place

for you to be who

you truly are.

lately I think

and remember

the homes God

has given me

throughout my life...

after being made

to feel utterly stupid

by geeky genius guys

in a subject I thought

I'd like (but just not

in college) I suddenly

found myself amidst

those more like me,

who could discuss

the movie they saw

last weekend and

their upcoming research.

my family-outside-home.

community of writers

hearts pointing to God

not just for a week

but forever...

another home emerges.

thank You my Sweet Lord

for giving me the homes

I've needed at the exact

moments they've best

benefitted me.
