No matter where I chance to roam

The place I heal the best is home….

Once while working in Fort McMurray at one of my fathers hotels…..I felt homesick.  An elder stopped by the lobby and asked me how I was doing.  I told him I wanted be at my own home but my family needed the help for the time being.   He smiled and said

You are always home

Where you walk is sacred ground.

This is your home….(pointing his whole body)….

He had my attention.

This is your roof

These are your windows…..

On and on throughout the whole body with the roof being the top of my head and the windows my eyes.

I never forgot that….until now.
