home for the holidays

Even a trip to the library can become an excuse to explore.

Through the double doors where the library meets the community center, in a re-purposed old high school, there is magic light and deep beauty, in this most unexpected place.

Everywhere I turned there were pieces of home. Is it possible to feel homesick while you are home? You know that feeling . . . when you know something won't last forever, and you want to hang on for dear life.

Headed back down the road toward home, we were on the lookout for feral swine. If not for the flyer on the community bulletin board, we wouldn't have even known this was a problem nor where to report such a sighting.
