Katherine Muir

Home

Home is the word I hear most often during my work day. The people who say it do not mean their room in the nursing home, although the staff tells them that this is their new home. No, home to them is the place they left, often when their world changed in an instant due to a broken hip. To learn the meaning of “home,” ask the white-haired woman sitting in a wheelchair who no longer has one….

As a psychologist practicing primarily in nursing homes, Katherine Muir is exposed to an atmosphere packed with nostalgia and longing, time after time. Hearing the word “home” repeatedly pronounced by the care facility residents, it became clear to her how their idea of home has shifted into a constant yearning for the life they once had. Touched and inspired, Katherine Muir composed an emotional essay as an “empathic tribute” to her elderly patients. Katherine Muir is the Gold Writer of the ArtAscent “Home” Call For Writers. Read this artists’ written creation in the Home edition of ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal.

Solace In My Garden

In the very front of my farmhouse, there is a garden that I have planted. Four cheerful window boxes filled with an array of purple and yellow pansies, and milky white geraniums greet my guests as well. And, of course, fragrant basil plants are scattered about. They make all of my summer culinary concoctions that much more delicious, especially my famous Italian tomato salad that’s the hit of every August barbecue…

A Street Named Faithful

Tucked between ocean and city
you’re hard to find
and not that faithful
with faded blue skin
and chipped front tooth
how could I walk by each day and believe in you?

Even when set in concrete
raised eyebrows and question marks follow your name
because you’re not a place
yet I knew where I…

Tea Time

“Grandpa! Come on! Santa came to your house, too! It’s time for presents!” A girl of six, blonde ponytail falling back on her red dress, tugged at Kyle’s pants leg. He smiled as he opened his faded kitchen cupboard. “Well, now. Don’t you wait on little ol’ me, Christy. You go on ahead, and I’ll be there in a minute. I just need my tea first.” The girl pouted, her hands dramatically on her hips. So like her grandma, he thought. “I’m not opening a single present with…

Home

Jason stared at the crisp white sheets of paper neatly edging the corner of his polished wooden desk. Another stack, swarming with malicious fine print, stood at ease near the tailored cuff of his sleeve. Jason’s eyes wandered from the heap of future stress to the corporate skin that enveloped him. Bold black and white stripes of imported dyes and self-righteous cashmere made up a thousand dollars worth of the business suit that hung stiffly over his squared shoulders…
