A Long Way Back

It is a long way back, a long way back, to simplicity, back to the vision with the sun shining upon it, back to my simple soul. ~Muriel Strode (1875–1964), "Songs of Longing," At the Roots of Grasses, 1923

My simple soul... this quote paints such a beautiful picture and one that I will hang on my heart as I step long back into my ordinary days.  I have missed them.

I feel as if I have lived abroad for many months longing for something but not knowing what it was until I realized that I longed for home.  Writing is home to me.  I have missed it and I have missed all of you.

What has taken me so long to awaken from this fog?  Putting all I have into creating what is not my passion has not been entirely unproductive.  I have learned many things and have met new friends along the way.  Still, my heart calls me home.
