The Road Home


This was my view, through the windshield, on Saturday afternoon.  Still about an hour away from the farmette, but totally quiet and deserted.  Not to worry, I stopped the car in the middle of the road for this picture.  

Many thanks to those of you who left a kind word in my comments section.  My Dad made it through surgery and is out of ICU.  Though he remains in the hospital, for the time being, he is doing better than expected.  

"When the pretty birds have flown, 
and you feel hurt and alone,
Be strong and carry on, 
And remember that life goes on."

  9. This is a lovely scene of country life. I can imagine many states in which it would be typical.

    I'm glad to read that your father's operation went well and that he is out of the ICU. Your poem is very appropriate, Michelle.

  32. Pleased to hear of the improvement in your Dad, sorry I didn't catch up with the story earlier.
    The more I look at that the photo, the better it is. Ok there's the road and the ethereal clouds and the main subject of the tree. It would be disappointing without the barn ... or even the telegraph poles as they add some flavour too. Great Composition.
