"I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself." Maya Angelou
There is something quite satisfying about taking a journey back home in the middle of Autumn. Especially if the rain holds off so you can get out there to enjoy the simple beauty of the great outdoors. Driving across the state of PA is very long, and quite lovely.
|Green Acres for sure!|
Farm after farm, folks waving to the passersby who are obviously visitors, for in these rural locations, everybody knows everybody, and they all know each others' vehicles (pick-up trucks, tractors, horses), so when an odd vehicle carrying out of towners, with out of state plates, passes through, they are greeted with hospitality. Can only be one reason to be this far off the beaten path. It's no secret that if someone is passing through this neck of the woods, they are here for one reason only; and that is coming home....and I did just that with all my redneckedness intact! Some things never change.
The changing of the seasons is a way of life. Especially in the Northeast where Mother Nature puts on a display worthy of this Universe. And coming home, is a peaceful easy feeling. The same feeling that a child has running free in their own "Garden of Eden". The innocent stage of life, where nothing mattered...nothing at all. The carefree days, before setting off into the real world where grown up topics are displayed in living color, and inevitably make their way into your peaceful existence. The realization as you move through life as an adult of the corruption that has taken hold of our society, cannot infiltrate your peaceable kingdom if you stay true to your very own soul. And by going home to your "Garden of Eden" with your soul intact, is the very best way to live your life to its fullest. All we have is the present. The past is gone. The future may never be...make peace and live for right now. JUST BE!!!
