I had some other deep, meaningful stuff to write about, but I thought I’d share this bit of philosophy by Lily Burana (found by way of Rachel). It reminded me of a few conversations I’ve had recently (hi, Jae). I don’t know Lily, but I may start reading her just because I like her definition of home:
Home is where you don’t have to explain yourself. Home is where you don’t have to raise your voice to be heard. All jokes are understood, and all efforts appreciated—or at least most. Home is where you feel safe. Not the safety of hiding, but the safety of being SEEN—dumb humor, geeky hobbies, fiendish longings, habits, vulnerabilities, the whole magilla. If you’ve got that person, place, or pursuit in your life, rejoice. If you’re not there yet, my holiday wish is that you find your way home soon.
What Lily said.
As for that deep, meaningful stuff I was going to write—you’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
