Sunday Nature Quote: Sun Roasted Peace

“A good roast of sun, it slows you, lets you relax–and out here if there’s anything wrong, you can see it coming with bags of time to do what’s next. This is the place and the weather for peace, for the cultivation of a friendly mind.”

Photography 101: Home

I have lived all over the United States and have called most states home at one time or another and I have lived in five of them for several years at a time:

  • I was born in Augusta, GA and lived there several times.
  • Grew up on Cape Cod, Mass and if I had to call one place home this would be it as so many of my family memories are so closely tied with this place.
  • I lived and had my daughters in Dallas, TX.
  • I spent most of my adult life in Indiana always wishing to be elsewhere, Florida in particular. I never adjusted to being land locked.
  • Now I reside in the state I’ve called home in my heart before I even moved here – yes it’s Florida. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

As for the other 43 states I’ve lived in (excluding HI & AK) I lived in each for a weekend, a week or even a month or more. For two years I lived in a minivan/camper which I called home. So whatever state that campervan was in I was at home. You will find more on this adventure at my Jubilee Journey blog under the “My Jubilee Journey Journal” category.

But the one thing that stands out when I think about what home is are the three people in this photo below because without them there is no home. Home truly is where the heart is.

Sunday Nature Quote: Orange Skies & Purple Clouds

“Thank God I have seen an orange sky with purple clouds. How easy it is to forget that we have the privilege of living in God’s art gallery.”
