There’s no place like home…
I could have chosen many images to represent home: our house full of our memories; the soothing beaches we’ve spent hours on searching for treasures; the house I grew up in; the people who make this place feel like home: or any of the scenic spots surrounding this beautiful city.
Any of these, alone, seems inadequate to represent the feelings of comfort and community that come from having a history in a place, when thinking of the city we live in.
It is equally challenging to place the entire meaning of home in our house; we’ve moved several times and each one felt like home.
Home is more than a place: It is family and ftiends and shared stories and a sense of safety. It is where our past meets our present. It is an intangible feeling of being at home, a feeling of belonging.
While waiting for the Canada Day fireworks, we spotted this beautiful rainbow over the water. The light was mesmerizing. I decided to use this picture to represent home because it is warmth, beauty, and wonder – just like home.
