Inspired by . . . a place called home

As the flat lands gave way to timbered peaks, and the highway began tunneling under the mountains, rather than zipping over the top of them, our anticipation grew. We were nearing our destination.

We had come to this place, nestled in a spot where the Smokey and the Blue Ridge stand face-to-face, in search of. . .

. . . rest? peace? a home-away-from-home?




Yes, all of these. A home-away-from-home where we could put our responsibilities aside, for a brief time, and rest. Rejuvenate.

We didn't find what we were looking for.




Instead what we found was a lesson – one we're still learning.




I'm going to share more about what we're learning in an upcoming post(s).

Sometimes, the very thing you're looking for is where you least expect to find it.


I hope you've enjoyed my 'flower art" today.

Here's a look at the elements I used.


The texture is Bonnie's 'Age It'
