Autumn on the Blueridge Parkway

parkway-100-127-2

I am currently in a very different place – in a semi-tropical environment where there are thick leaved plants with beautiful foliage and long sandy beaches. I love where I am, I want to be here, but find it funny that I am sad that we missed the miraculous change of color in more northern climates. I keep remembering the joyful smell of musky wet air on a walk in the woods, the sound of crunching as I kick my way through dry, fallen leaves that cover sidewalks, the glow of a beautifully perfect tree dressed in red.

I am so happy that I can live in two worlds by searching through memories and photo files.
