.456 the creativity project :: home ::

home is where the heart is...

and mine has come back (for two weeks) on military leave from dubai.

twinkin. sibling. same b-day. three years younger is here and making my heart beats steady.

(bahrain money)

(pure frankincense)


he and toots have been "besties" since he's gotten here.
 her, following, foot to heel, every where that he goes. 
"uncle albie, do you want to color with me? uncle al, uncle al, uncle al..." 
a million requests at a time and he appeases, practically, every single one.

(she will be rotten by the time he leaves)

economically, the military has been good to him. 
but physically, it has been torturous. 

the eczema, on his hands especially, are taking a vicious turn in the climates and conditions they've forced him in.
military doctors are a joke and what it has done to his spirit is no laughing matter...

but home is also where the healing is. 

and we still have just a few more days of healing to do...

saying goodbye :(

 now that you've reached the end, 
please follow along in visiting the next photographer in our circle, my friend 
becky, over at and view her take on this month's theme.

i have followed the journey of their family's patriarch for some time, and this month she showcased his journey, beautifully.

afterwards, please join us and share your own 'home' themed images on the the creativity project facebook page!
