“I suspected, however, that I wasn’t homesick for anything I would find at home when I returned. The longing was for what I wouldn’t find: the past and all the people and places there were lost to me.” Alice Steinbeck

    Isn’t that a horrible feeling? To be homesick at home? Beautiful image, Karen, and the quote with the image really resonates with me.

  • Thank you very much for the kind and thoughtful comment….I know exactly how you feel as well. I miss ‘home’ myself…quite often, but it is the home I knew growing up, the home I raised my kids in, the place I always felt accepted. “Home is where the heart is.” Can’t recall who wrote that! Thanks again!
