                                                         — By Denn A. Meneses

      There is a magical place in our own private universe that stays at the core of our being 
no matter where our life’s journeys take us. It is where we seek refuge when the slings 
and arrows of outrageous fortune have become too much for the soul to bear.
     Home beckons the child in us who cries out above the din of conflicting sounds and 
clashing egos. It is like an unseen hand that lulls us to blissful slumber, a strong shoulder 
upon which we can cast our never-ending burdens, and an invisible light that warms the 
innermost of our hearts.
    It smoothes our ruffled feathers, irons out the wrinkles in our overwrought countenance, 
and repairs the chinks in our overused armor — letting us forget our fears for the time 
being, bringing us back to more transcendent time when we were children.
    Ah, the time when we were children. Wasn’t it the most pristine and sublime period of 
our existence? It is the time of our life when laughter was easy, dreams were for free, 
moments were tender, and troubles were a world away.
    And home, sweet home, was the safest place to be. Inside its protective walls we were 
shielded from the inexorable pains of growing up, taking them all in, and letting them go. 
Its unblemished air allowed us to breathe generously the fresh smell of morning sunshine, 
the invigorating whiff of new mown hay, animals in pasture, flowers in bloom and soft 
breeze blowing from the horizon.
    It is a virtual reservoir of the loveliest thoughts and fondest memories of our life, mostly 
well and devoutly spent to be wished for again and again a harbor where things and faces 
are warm and familiar, giving and nurturing, caring and everlasting. It bequeathed to us in 
no small measure the priceless gift of innocence, the wonderful feeling of mirth and the 
invaluable sensation of being forever young.
    It is where we shed our superficial selves, repair our battered bodies, boost our wilting 
spirits, fix our tarnished psyches, mend our bruised emotions and change our evil ways.
    It is that one warm spot in all of God’s marvelous creation where we could be children 
again — feet up, hair down, laughter perpetually etched on our faces, like goblins playing 
in the rain, romping in the mountains, running up and down barefoot on the shore, 
frolicking as if there wasn’t any worry in the world.
   When we were in the simplicity and buoyancy of our youth, all that we had were dreams 
to spin, rainbows to chase, stars to wish upon, and dewdrops to catch. Home shapes the 
persons we are today. It stirs passions long laid dormant, letting it all break out and fall 
free. And we always emerge the better for allowing ourselves to delight in the breathtaking 
review of often-trodden pathways and old, familiar places; the welcoming embrace of 
cherished faces; and the fond memories not at all faded by time.
       Indeed, more often than not, we stray too far to places unknown in search of what we 
need, what we want and what we would die for just to have — and we return home to find 
it.
