Home Fires

by Stefani on 25-October-2007

A Pine Line

We rambled and roamed.

We saw trees that are different from ours, leaves whose shapes we did not know by heart, the way we know the ones on our everyday paths.

Leaf Skeleton

We saw things that needed an explanation…

Drive In

things that held history for our family…

Lone Star

and things that took our breath away, imagining the lives that must have unfolded there.


We stayed awhile, and enjoyed a new, old, view.


And then we came home. We gathered ’round, remembered our journey, told our stories and made plans for the days to come.

Home Fires

It was good to get away.

And it is good to be home again.

Welcome back. The journey is nothing without the return, and the return is nothing without the journey.
