To some the home in the distance might seem afar off. In truth, the verdant beauty of the world proclaims that "home" is all around wherever we might be.
The concepts of gardens and oriental rugs have much in common (as a little research will reveal to the curious.)
For those embattled by the sterile cold of winter, the memory of a garden, or its symbolic presence in a traditional oriental rug, is the hope of a time and place that will come again.
Some feel it is home; some call it home. Some know it as paradise. We all know what it is. We all know what it feels like. If we are not there, we look forward to being there again. We all know when we are there.
