I have had my dream — like others —
and it has come to nothing, so that
I remain now carelessly
with feet planted on the ground
and look up at the sky.”~William Carlos Williams
We’re back home after spending two weeks on the road, traveling through New York and New Jersey, visiting dear friends and family. This rainy Monday is a perfect day to go through my photos and do laundry!
For this week’s challenge, here’s a shot taken one morning on a walk through Warwick, New York. On a narrow side street, I spotted this little church with the welcoming red door.
These trips are always bittersweet–it’s a joy spending time with people whom you love and with whom you have had a long history, but once again you must endure the separation—saying goodbye and knowing it will be a while until you meet again. So that explains my melancholy mood today! But still, we are fortunate to have the means to stay in touch even at a distance. Goodbye is never truly a goodbye when we can Skype, email and text….and of course blog.
And yes, I’ve missed all of you–my blogging friends over the past few weeks. I’m happy to be back here with you. Enjoy your travels and time off and have a great week, everyone!
