Thoughts of Home


It’s been a long hard ride
Got a ways to go
But this is still the place
That we all call home

~~Dierks Bentley, Home



“Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the roads which lie ahead, and those over which we have traveled, and if the future road looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and, carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that as well.”

~~Maya Angelou (Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now)


I still remember
When thirty was old
My biggest fear was September
When he had to go
A few cards and letters and one long distance call
We drifted away like the leaves in the fall
But year after year I come back to this place
Just to remember the taste

~~Deana Carter, Strawberry Wine
