There’s No Place Like Home

“… let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you…” – kahlil gibran

I took my heart home to my beloved Michigan on a blustery autumn weekend.

Something in the wild beauty of roaring wind and rolling waves feeds a craving that lives deep within my soul. There truly is no place like home.

“Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains of the moon.

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known”.

— J. R. R. Tolkein

Oh yes, at last to home, and my heart sings once more πŸ™‚

    Oh, I know just what you mean by that feeling! I have stood many times on these shores at mid-late autumn and felt the wind and that peculiar haunting chill it carries over the waves and the rocks and the brown grasses – absolutely unlike anything else- and how does one truly explain it? My hair is short now, but it’s best when long and free to dance in that wind that evades capture!

    “peculiar haunting chill” was a good description, Pel! As Van the Man says — “why must I always explain… “
