Sounds of Home

 Do you stop and listen to the sounds of home?
We open our mail
and chat a bit 
Tearing of paper....
a parcel from France
On our heels a happy dog barks,
 as we make our way into our weekday evening
 Some nights it's studio time before dinner....
 Keeping my attention to detail
finding inspiration with my camera
Imperfections become interesting
Soon I hear dinner dishes clinking 
and then the cooking aromas
 seal us in for the moment
It's just another evening in our home
safe and content.


  1. Sounds comforting to me. So beautiful here every time I visit even if I do not always leave behind a comment. xxo

  2. loving that stack of tags Rhonda.
    It is all so soft and elegant. Must be refreshing to come home after a hard days work to this space.

  3. LOVE THIS, RHONDA! Quiet, gentle, gray and white, home is where silence is the best. How I love your world. Anita
