Intimate Focus

“Nothing is more intimate than Home, and therefore nothing more proper to the soul. Whatever it takes to call forth the spirits of Home . . . is worth our effort and expense. It is always time to trim a plant, glaze a window, clean a rug, or write a poem about home, talk to relatives about the old days and the old homestead, and remember the failures and painful memories that took place at home. All of these go into the making of the soul’s home, a daily work that prepares us for our death and gives our lives the intimate focus that is the primary gift of home.”

Thomas Moore
