Thread Name: Lyr Add: Here Is My Home (Si Kahn)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Here Is My Home -- Si Kahn
I have sung this one a few times lately, because it has taken on a special meaning for me. During a difficult period of moving away from nasty flatmates and into a new home with a good folkie friend, I sang it at my folk club, and felt so moved, I could barely manage to get through it.

This tough time was documented in this thread - Help: A difficult move-JennyO needs support
and I certainly did get the support - both from lots of lovely people on Mudcat, and from friends who helped me move.

I decided I would sing the song again when the move was completed and we had our first session. That happened around my birthday about three weeks ago. By that time, another unexpected but delightful event had happened - the friendship had blossomed into love. So from a crisis has come a beautiful new relationship, and I have come home in a much greater sense than I would ever have dreamed of.

So whenever I sing "Here Is My Home", I'm singing it for John. I'll be sure to sing it at our BBQ and song party for friends and helpers on the 23rd next month when Charley Noble and Naemanson come for their visit, too.
