#2,299 Home Again.

After such an adventure, the sight of our home, its apples and oranges smell, the soft creaky spot in the hallway, the glow of the light in the stairwell, the framed photo with cracked glass awaiting repair on the breakfast table, the purple pansies in my favorite Mexican pottery on the front steps, the rug in the office that always collects little bits of lent,  the huge puppies waiting with their paws on the fence when they hear our voices in the driveway… Coming home after being away from it still makes my heart beat faster than any California sunset.
