Going home

Going home . Winter 2008 . by cc
Home is where the heart is. click photo to enlarge.

Walking along the path like a thousand times before,
My mind is muddy and body so worn,
There’s only one place I want to be,
Take me home, take me home.

A brown roof and a tall tall tree in the horizon,
The familiar blue door in sight, quiet light shining through,
I see you standing there, through an open door,
Arms spreading, with a smile.

When I lost my heart and the road seems to be leading nowhere,
It’s good to know there’s someone there,
I’m here now, it’s good to be home.

    it reminds me of this:

    If you wonder off too far, my love will get you home.
    If you follow the wrong star, my love will get you home.
    If you ever find yourself, lost and all alone,
    get back on your feet and think of me, my love will get you home.
    Boy, my love will get you home.
    -Christine Glass-

    Wondering if this picture will look better if taken from a low angle…

    CC: It is taken from a low angle (As low as I could get before completing lying one the floor!). There’s another one, but I prefer this. It’s a spontaneous shot, I had to act very fast as they’re walking away!

    No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. ~Lin Yutang
