I've got to get out of Texas, if only for a little while.
Every moment longer I spend here a small part of my soul flares out into the quiet oblivion. I try and slow the loss with periodic exodus' from this barren land. I've been to explore places like Atlanta, Minneapolis, New York City, Washington DC, Vancouver BC, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles.
But the last time I was in my mountains, in the actual high country my heart calls home was over 4 years ago.
Where do you call home? Not where do you live, but what landscape do you feel breathe, and sigh, and rise to meet you when you return?
