Casa: what is a home?

547078_3325333496509_95312314_nIf ever I were asked what home is for me, I would use the words of W. H. Auden, because home is really just this:

“…and love, sing all the birds, are what matter:
what I dared not hope or fight for
is, in my fifties, mine, a toft-and-croft
where I needn’t, ever, be at home to

    those I am not at home with, not a cradle,
a magic Eden without clocks,
and not a windowless grave, but a place
I may go both in and out of.

from Thanksgiving for a Habitat, W. H. Auden
