“I think what you notice most when you haven’t been home in a while is how much the trees have grown around your memories.” — Mitch Albom
I’ve been thinking and dreaming, scuffing around the lawn with my camera, staring up at the trees. I met my new nephew for the very first time, and watched my sweet niece tear around under the canopy, screeching and laughing the way happy children do. I walked out in the dark to the deafening chorus of the peeper-frogs in the swamp — astounded, as always, at the noisy, unashamed way they sing themselves into Spring.
And meanwhile, I’ve been thinking about what’s Next — because Home is good for that.
I’ll write more on that subject later, but for now, I thought I’d share a few brief snaps from my time here…
Take a breath this Monday morning, and enjoy:
