Thinking of Home

On the eve of Thanksgiving, many of us are going home or perhaps we’re remembering homes we’ve made and known. At Alma del Pueblo, we’re creating beautiful new homes, so the subject is always on our mind!

Today, we offer you a few words of wisdom about home, from those who say it best – the poets, the writers and philosophers:

“The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”

Maya Angelou, All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes

“Home is everything you can walk to.”

Rebecca Solnit, Storming the Gates of Paradise: Landscapes for Politics

“Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.”

Charles Dickens

As we head into the holidays, all of us at Alma del Pueblo wish you a warm, healthy and happy season!
