Contemplative Monday

The following quote is by Karen Maezen Miller from her blog post 'Homesick' at Cheerio Road.
            "Much of the time, our own life feels like a foreign country we can't wait to get out of.
                                               "And not a nice country, either.
      "Even life with the people we profess to love, to whom we have promised fidelity.(Especially those people.)
" Even the half-decent job, the nice neighbourhood, the loyal friends, the adorable kids, the good luck, the manifold blessings, the plan realized, the wish come true---nothing settles or calms for long, nothing feels quite right.
                                  "There's no place like the home you think you don't have."
