Sunday Post: Shelter

Shelter is an essential for our life on Earth, all living creatures take shelter! Human beings sheltered in caves for thousands of years, and eventually structures were used to provide added shelter and security.

Children love to hide in small spaces, enjoying the sensation of being sheltered and safe.

This cubby has a big cushion to close it and provide total shelter from busy household life, a real getaway for a small person and a few soft toys.

Houses and stores to shelter people and goods can be very large and ornate, or very small and simple. Here in the Thar Desert in Rajasthan  beautiful mud brick huts and enclosures shelter the local tribes people in a pleasing and renewable way.
