It’s a bit chilly outside but the sun is shining and there are birds singing in the neighbor’s trees beside my back fence. It’s a lovely Fall day, but I feel ‘homesick’ – blue – yearning to leave it all behind and head for someplace where the autumn colors most certainly are glistening in the sun. I want to go back to the lake we loved when our children were young – where we camped with them each summer – and where my sweetheart and I spent a few days of vacation last month. How did I get the ‘blues’ ? When did I begin to feel ‘homesick’ for the lake? I think it started when I chose this photo for my blog yesterday. It stole my heart and made me long to sit beside the shores of the lake and slowly take in the beauty there.
(Tomorrow I will show you the lake – and the beauty we enjoyed in September. We had not been there for many years – not since the children were young. It had not changed much. I think you will understand why I love this place just off the beaten path – a place that is filled with memories and is dear to my heart.)
