Today I jogged through the prairie, listening to a new playlist. Almost every song had the concept of home in it…some addressed it directly (i.e., Diddy-Dirty Money’s Coming Home) to hints in Jump, Little Children’s Cathedrals and Mumford & Sons’ Awake my Soul. I was particularly halted by Jason Mraz’s line in his song Living in the Moment, “Wherever I’m going, I’m already home.”
Home is such a fluid concept for me now. While I relish living in Fort Collins, I have no idea where I be living in the coming months. But I’m enticed by the sense “I’m already home.”
It invites me back to the words of John O’Donohue: “Spirituality is the art of home-coming.”
Home. Now. Here. And to come.
