Home at Last

When my hands are occupied, my heart ceases its senseless bounding around and settles quietly for a while, like a puppy finally calmed.

I dug out some felt and started on a banner. It’ll say, “Good Morning, Dear Earth”, the opening line to the traditional Waldorf greeting song that we sing each morning.

I already have this banner, in a paler yellow. It has been folded away since I made it a year ago.

I had nowhere to hang it, you see.

Last night, I pulled it out of its box and hung it over the fireplace in the school/dining room. It fits between two windows, right where the sun rises.

I felt an ache in my chest, a happy ache.

I have never belonged anywhere – I crossed the earth and still couldn’t find a place to settle.

Until now. Now I finally feel that I am home.

At last.
