A homecoming

PHOTO PROMPT- © Sandra Crook

The place has character; the streets, the buildings, the people

and the general atmosphere has a certain je ne sais quoi you won’t find back home.

Home being where we lived America, not where our roots spring from France.

This time I have to agree with mum, it was a beautiful and peaceful place.

I felt like a character in a historic romance novel.

Looking over at grandma I couldn’t help tearing up, she looked the happiest

I had ever seen her in my life.

United with the soil of her childhood for the first time in decades.

  1. It is comforting when that little niggle enters our mind, especially if one has never visited and only heard stories. It is as though home is finally found.
