Finally Home

Marjorie Metcalf-Buchanan's avatar Marjorie Metcalf-Buchanan

Picture was created to capture, for the viewer, a few moments of recollection of an earlier life from the early 1900's. The recreation was inspired by memories of parents/grandparents' description of their home life, livelihood, work and returning home. FINALLY HOME - Life may give you many things, but a home to come to the true heart brings. Familiar voices familiar face and tender memories fill this space. A place for rest and free from strife, quips of a yesteryear dearer life. Perhaps a little corner nook, a warm fire perhaps a book. The aged had their rocking chairs, wee small trundle beds up the stairs. The morning sunlight from the door I'll see, the smell of the lilacs awaken me. Crowded pathways of poppies give me their nod, I am once again alone with God. A home to come to is all we need, so pay it forward.....a home God speed. Though storms and winds around us blow, we're finally home.....that's all we know! Mj April 2015
