For weeks leading up to a trip,
I plan and consider how to spend
the days away.
Reading, resting, visiting, exploring…
I make more plans than
there are minutes in the day.
However, as I turn the key
in the bolt to our front door,
I breath in the comforting scents
the well-worn corner
of the kitchen couch.
Travel is invigorating
but home is essential.

Ah yes, you captured this moment after a trip perfectly. Turning that key is a relief followed by a comforting inhale.
Welcome home! Yes, it is essential.
