I just watched the movie The Wiz. Can I just say the movie (which I have seen many many many times since childhood) struck a cord with me. I feel like Dorthy in Not so Wonderland trying my best to get back home. I even have a little dog too!
I am missing my home right now. It seems like ages since I have been there yet each time I step over the threshold a sense of relief overwhelms me. My best friend calls my home the Fortress of Naps. Well it may be that but the love and affection that radiates from the walls of my house.. Well.. It rejuvenates me. That house is the last place my father lived and where my mom comes when she wants to get away from the busy busy of her life in Tennessee.
If I was at home right now I would be sitting on the balcony looking at the lake. Most likely drinking a beer.. There is something about sitting by water and beer. It is as if they need each other to be complete. Lazing by water + beer = good times.
I am going to share a few pictures of my Nexus of Peace and Serenity and Anne's Fortress of Naps. Hopefully, I will be home soon so I can see the Magnolia trees bloom.
