We held secrets here.
This nest, these four walls, thin enough to whisper through.
Tiny ones often construct through sticks and findings.
Down the trunk, through branches, from branch to branch in which we in habited in different years.
If you trace his back, study the markings, ones left by all here, if you look deep inside you can see them. You can feel them day to day.
Years pass, this nest deserted. Removed or perhaps inhabited by others and all disperse,scatter like seeds on soil.
And look again -roots withstanding that have seen them come and go, that entangle and connect from the smallest buried deep to those sprouting out, hands trace the history.
Through storms and stress, growth and giving, young sapling how we began, how we begin. if you listen closely you can hear life in this, breath and beating.

    throughout the course of our lives we inhabit many different places...places we often feel comfortable enough to call a home. we pass through these places, sometimes staying for months, other times for years. and while living there we make our own personal marks along the way. we share our settlements with others, and share our lives with one another.there are many houses that i look back as defining points in my life. changes took place, laughter arose, tears were shed, lessons learned, secrets shared, embraces exchanged, and then we move on as simple as that. sometimes we revisit these places, through pictures and stories, and we hold them dear to our heart. we keep in touch with some of our old roomates, some we hold close like brothers and sisters, others fall to the wayside. either way, these places play parts in all of our lives, change the way we live and view things.
