I recently did an art piece on the theme home. It makes one think deeply about what home is about. Is it a house, is it a place, or a feeling? I have two homes I love and I am torn between them. I love the mountains and their cool evenings and textured blue misty mounds. I also love Florida with its tropical lush growth, water birds and beaches. I grew up in Florida, so the heat and humid air is something I am used to. But then I discovered the mountains cool summer nights and lightning bugs flitting at sunsets edge. I discovered rural farms and nature that is as much a part of me, as tropic breezes and palm trees rustling in the summer rains. I am lucky, for right at this moment I do not have to choose between them and when the time comes I must choose, I do not know how I will give either up. I will count my blessings now and consider myself a very fortunate person to know two worlds and love them both.
