Home Is Where the Lights are On

Now that the covering of darkness comes earlier in the day, I tend to notice house lights more. As Hannah and I were running in the dark this evening, I found myself enjoying the comfort of the homes where there was light emanating from the kitchen and living room windows.

The sad homes that you pass in the darkness are the ones where no one is home, where all of the windows are perfectly dark.

Homes were made to live in, to congregate in, to be a center of community life.

When lights are on at home, the world is a much cozier place indeed.
