Thinking of Home
|Thinking of Home|
I did this drawing sometime ago with graph tint pencils. It was sketched from a photograph of an African wolf. There was something about the tilt of the head and the look in the eye that drew me to title the drawing "Thinking of Home".
In fifty plus years there have been three places I have called home. Wonderful memories are associated with each one. The first was where I grew up. The second was a small efficiency apartment. Hubby and I started our married life there. The third is where I now live.
Having experienced homesickness a few times
I identify with Dorothy in the "Wizard of Oz". Her entire goal was to get home. Was it Kansas she missed or those she loved?
For me home is not the location. It is the representation of love and acceptance of those who live there.
If in this life one finds that place they are indeed blessed.
Hoping you are all somewhere called home.
