Back home again
We arrived in Warrenton Virginia today about noon and headed for El Agave’ Mexican restaurant to have lunch with our hosts for the next two weeks , Mary Anne and Mike Wassenburg. They reside in the gorgeous area called Snow Hill. Their home is a classic Victorian three level home on a couple of wooded acres. We are so blessed to have them as friends!
We then went over to spend time with my oldest son Michael and his family. They have a new pup named Otis. Haleigh, our granddaughter was overjoyed to see Lou Ann one of her favorite people. We were there a few hours and then had more Mexican food at El Toro.
Thomas Wolfe wrote You can’t go home again. I didn’t read it. When I return to this area in Northern Virginia there are a lot of good memories with some strong feelings of happiness, pleasure, angst and sadness. Lou Ann and I only lived here seven years before going to Hawaii for four years. We made a lot of friends here whom we have a deep heart connection. I made more money in four years here than I did in the previous fifteen. When we left there was a large going away party for us.
And yet, this is just another place on my journey of discovery in this life. I have had a lot of homes. Lived in some seventy different houses. Some have said, home is where you hang your hat. I say, home is wherever you feel connected to why you are here on planet Earth. Why do you live where you are? How does it serve you and the world at large? Would you live somewhere else that might match your soul’s journey?
I love my family very much and yet I have been apart from them a lot. They are doing well and I am proud of them all. My wish is for all of us to find the best place that fills our heart and mind with treasures that are priceless and are filled with love. From my wandering and grateful heart to yours, Thomas
