When we head out of town, I’m always grateful for the change of scenery. People rave about palm trees and Florida beaches — but when you live with them, it’s easy to forget that they’re enthralling. I crave evergreens and maples, and hills and bubbling brooks.
Then, once that change of scenery has become commonplace after a week or so, when I come back home, I’m reminded just how much I love this place. The palm trees. The beaches and rivers. The marsh grass and waterbirds. The sudden afternoon thunderstorms that roll, spitting lightning, out to sea.
It’s nice to come home.~ Laura
