thoughts on home and riding my bike

I am trying to remember
I have not ridden my bike
to work every morning
of my entire life...
And now some thoughts
on home.
Lately it has been important for me to feel
that the idea of home
is not so tied to a place as it is to me
and what I make that place into.
Lately I need to believe that what I love and cling to about my home here can be recreated somewhere else - or at least that I can create another home somewhere where I will feel just as safe and strong and as much myself as I have felt here, in this home.
And today I think I do believe it.


  1. I think a feeling of home will follow you wherever you go. For me, it seems wherever I am at, later, I look back with some nostalgia--then it is realized, there was a "home" there, too. :)

  2. Hooray for new beginnings! New places are always hard for me, but I'm sure you'll find your way to a little place that's perfect for you x

  3. Thanks so much ladies! I know I will find my place on the west coast, but its still a bit of a leap to take. But I am looking forward to it :)
