Home . . .

This is a picture of Main Street in the small town in Iowa where I grew up.  I took this picture about 3 years ago when I was there visiting my family.  I lived here until I was 18 and moved away in 1978.  I moved away to go to college . . . lived in Florida and Connecticut for awhile and finally landed in California.  I have lived away from this small town for 37 years . . . I have lived in the town where I live now for 28 years . . . many more years than I spent in my hometown,
This small town holds so many memories of my youth and very much shaped who I grew up to be. When I am there . . . I realize what a great place it was to grow up and I sometimes regret having moved so far away. It will always be home to me.  


  1. You picture looks like a postcard - such wonderful colors. It's probably corny to say it but "there's no place like home".

  2. Even "cornier" - since home is Iowa.
