“Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” ~ Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Your new house is not a house; it is your home,
a home with hearth radiating heart & warmth.
Home is an incantation, an invocation of intent,
a vocation of desire. Home is a loom. Home
is an open door, a gathering & weaving together
of family & friends & loves. Home is imagination,
soaring. Home is a dreamcatcher, dreamt large.
Home is a garden, a sanctuary of shelter
& promise. Home is a repository of music
& memories, genius & soul. The soul
of your home is love, love, love.
~ Andrew Shattuck McBride
