and bench monday #21... finding home edition.

 

I like the concept of the theme today, in the group's description it says...

Photography for finding the path to home, through its several meanings and wherever it is... Attempting to trace what home stands for, we keep on taking photos...

 

I think that sums it up. This is my home. I am so far from my home home, in California where I grew up and lived until 1998. But now, NW Illinois is home. This tiny town of 2000 is a pretty darned good place to live. I can leave the kids in the yard without a worry, and if they do get into trouble, you can be sure someone will be calling to tell me all about it! That's important with two boys, they are future small-time hoodlums, I'm sure. Even though I am someone who loves to move, loves being anywhere but here, and still considers herself an urbanite, I think that this might just be home. For good.

 

For Flickr Group Roulette.

And Theme of the Week, Emotional.
