Windows. Doors. They never fail to fascinate me. I love walking around new neighborhoods, wondering about the stories that lie behind the doors and windows that I see. Perhaps that’s the storyteller in me. Always conjuring up scenes and dialogue in my head.
I love this neighborhood where the children and I recently spent some time in. Some places grab your heart in an instant, they feel just like home. This was one of them. Steinbeck wrote, “People don’t take trips, trips take people.”
I believe that now, one hundred percent.
And places where your heart feels most at home, are places you return to, time and again, to ground yourself, to find yourself, and to fall in love once more.
