Home songs

I have written about how our gallery is having a theme show about "home," and one of the ideas I had about potential art I might create was to tie in with my daily art focus on calligraphy, by writing some of the many song lyrics that include the word "home."  Actually this idea struck while I was lying in bed at 3 a.m. not sleeping, and without even moving my head from the pillow I was able to think of at least a dozen songs that qualified.  A bit of googling the next morning, and three days of back-to-back music at a jazz festival gave me plenty of additional ideas.

I don't think this is going to be my actual art to exhibit, but I have been having lots of fun with "home" songs as my daily calligraphy.  You can probably even read some of them:

  1. What an interesting idea! Love it.

  2. Oh, Kathleen! Now you've done it. When I read this, my earworm immediately started alternating between My Indiana Home and Tie a Yellow Ribbon. Yesterday, it was Sweet Home Alabama, and today it's Simon and Garfunkel's Homeward Bound. LOL!

  3. Loving all this and now the songs - awesome fun, Kathy!
