familial culture,


a place unclothed,

a place unexposed,

delusions, an illusion,

solitude, attitude,

escape, a vision,

a mission, a passion,

warmth of fire, heart's desire,

a dirt road, a place to unload,

intimate embrace, special place,

a friendly face, a runner's pace,

inner sanctum, mental mission,

out of doors, outer space,

cliché, where the heart is means

any of these or many one may call Home.
