Places We Walked, Places We Were

A  L  O  H  A
The Portals I walked through -

"As you sing, the 
portals of heaven 
are opening."
            Sherry K. White












Walking Distance; Places Near Home -

“Hegel used to say that 
the familiar, precisely 
because it is familiar, 
remains unknown.” 
      Carl William Brown









“At the end of the day, 
it isn’t where I came from. 
Maybe home is somewhere 
I’m going and never 
have been before.” 
              Warsan Shire



. . . Distant Memories 
as I sit here today.

Is it Places I Miss,
or the Younger Person
I Was Walking There?

What place remains
vivid in your mind's eye
though you have not 
walked there for 
a long time?

Thank YOU
Friend!

There are so many places that have a hold on my heart. Following my father along the river bank while he fished, Antarctica (of course), my mother's garden...

A thoughtful post - makes me long for my former home in Alabama. [Some people might laugh at that.]

If I start singing, portals don't open, they slam shut.
