On Tuesday I asked you about freedom. If you could live always as if you were on holiday, without a permanent home or chores, would you want to?
A few people were enthusiastic, many wanted the best of both worlds, and quite a few of you described your love of ‘nesting’.
So I wondered, what does a nest mean to you?
Some of you talked about the emotional side:
A nest where I can be at peace and feel secure and where I can recharge my internal batteries.
Some referred to tasks:
I’ve never been a good traveler, because I enjoy washing dishes, making my bed, tidying up ~ gives me a sense of calm and delight.
Someone who emailed me spoke of objects:
I don’t have that much ‘stuff’ but over the years I’ve gathered some beautiful treasures I love to look at, and which give me joy. They give my nest warmth.
I liked this idea of warmth, like feathers in our nest.
So what makes a nest for you? What is it that makes you call somewhere home?
