Photo by Jamie Walters, 2011.[/caption] Since I'm in the midst of 'moving house' as some of my friends say, and thus only marginally 'plugged in' for another week or so, it seemed appropriate to share this Sophia's Children post from a year ago. Musings on 'home and exile' include a few of my favorite insights from May Sarton and John O'Donohue, though they also connect in to the long tendrils and whispers of ancestral memory and voices, too. You'll see related posts and inspirations just below, too, if you want to follow this thread of reflection to see where it leads you (and what it evokes from within). While I'm 'shifting roots' and moving into my new flat, I'm wishing you the blessings and inspirations of your own deep-rootedness, and also the heart-yearnings that sometimes lead us into new growing grounds!. Big Love, Jamie
