What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house? Right now, the first thing any­body sees is Sam’s desk. No, that isn’t pre­cise­ly right. If you’re look­ing straight ahead at the wall, you see a col­lage by Katie, which is much lovelier.

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: How do you feel when you return home at the end of the day? I’m not sure I should have answered this one, as I doubt that my answer will be in sync with the intent of the ques­tion. I don’t leave home every day to go to work, or leave home […]
