I reach home-wards, for three days, to handle paperwork.
Must be done before March 31.
Hard road.
What is home? What defines it? And what is not?

Homewards means Baroda?Have a nice trip..memories from the past will keep flooding back,try and think of only the present and future, is all I could say. And, let the past be pleasant memories, to be referred to for inspiration.

I'm becoming very clich├ęd lately, but, and here it goes - home is where the heart it.

was surprised at the image. it is very green in bangalore right now.

Take care. I hate my home for many reasons, yet i long to go there.

home...even after marriage, home meant the house of my parents, the neighbourhood in which i spent my youth, and then gradually with time..i came to see myself as having two homes...one with my husband and one with my parents.... but now...somehow with Dad gone....home means very confusing things to me...i dont feel at peace in any home....
will the restlessness go away..i dont know...

Shooting... know exactly what you mean. right now I'm so layered and fragmented as a person, that it is not funny. Peace is elusive and fictional. Although anyone would never know.

Arunima: Yes, that was from the national park and quite a few trees were dry.Someday I hope to visit too.

Norrbu: and the heart is long gone.

Amit: In principle, I agree. Pratice? I fail :)

A question I thought about for some time. I have no answer. Maybe I write about it. But I must be in a certain mood, or state of mind to talk about, it is always personal.
I guess "home" is a state of mind. It depends on what you expect from this place, be it a real (geographically defined) or an imagined (or better: an emotional) location.

I was about to say something, and then I read 63mago's comment- home is a state of mind-absolutely for me, I can be at home whereever I'm at peace...
