Homeward Magicness

A   L   O   H   A  !

Marin, California Nov 2015 - May 2019  -  "Final Dawn"

There is a kind of magicness about going 
far away and then coming back all changed.

The day arrived. Final exit from "our"
driveway, and leaving of "our" street, our
 neighborhood. Dear neighbor drove us.
Goodbye, Pacheco Pond,
Golden Gate Bridge. Likely I will
never cross you again. Going home.
No intention to ever leave again.

"Leaving On A Jet Plane"
All roads lead home as home 
is where the heart is. 
So Love. Simply Love. 
For love is home to all of us.

I want to be someone you can’t live without.

VERY complicated procedure to bring
even an island born pet home!
Multiple tests, vet visits, and messengered
official paperwork for the State!
Every detail scrutinized, double checked.
Or Pixie would be incarcerated on return.
For months. The State office at HONO
that handles such matters was 
peopled by sad folks after long flights,
who just didn't know!
Children separated from pets! Adult
children separated from theirs, sadly.
At last a State veterinarian carrying
Pixie and a thick sheaf of documents
with our name on it appeared.
All in order! Happy Day!!!
We left the sad people,
an intact family for the
final leg of this epic journey:

It was his home now. But 
it could not be his home till he had 
gone from it and returned to it. 
Now he was the Prodigal Son.
