It’s the house where it happened; the home where they grew.
Sean was two when we moved in;
it is the only place Eric lived until he went to college.
This was taken on the day we scattered.
We still own the home atlthough none of us live there any more..
Tricia is in Louisville.
Sean and I are in diferent parts of Manhattan.
Eric and Essie are in Ann Arbor.

Last night’s time of prayer – prayer service – brings to mind some definitions – these belong to me, not to Webster or anyone else.
Shelter – a place of protection from the elements, from animals, from other people
House – a place to live, constructed in many ways and different styles using a variety of materials
Home – a place of belonging, built on a network of relationships and interactions with one another, grounded in love, filled with memories
May we all have shelters … houses … homes.
See you along the Trail.
