A home: undreamed, unconsidered, unplanned, unexpected. Unknowingly toiled for but delivered as though a gift. Arriving through serendipitous connections, happenstance, actions taken without thought, thoughts without reason. A home in the place I wanted to leave but which didn’t want to leave me. A structure for living, a garden for beauty, a pond for tranquility. A nest for those who live gratefully within, knowing there is no place like home.
