The Road Home
I was going through some of the many photography files I have on my hard drive the other day. As I sifted through the images, I ran across a folder titled "BLIZZARD". I distinctly remember going out in January of 2014 after a fresh 14 inch snow fall. I took my camera and 4x4 out early before anyone had an opportunity truly disturb the beauty. That day was really cold. I didn't make it out for a real long time and many of the photos either had my breath in the way or were out of focus because of the shivering. However, I did get some really good shots.
Now, a year later and living in beautiful Jacksonville Florida just a mere 15 miles from the beach, I look through these photos and my heart recalls that frigid Indiana day. Honestly, I don't miss the cold... or the snow... but home is home.
I am learning that home is a really hard thing to define these days. When I used to travel the hotel room became home for that night. If I am here in Jax and I say home I mean my house here on campus. If I say "back home" I am referring to those Indiana fields and the family that holds such deep spot in my heart.
Home... it can be a lot of places and look like a lot of things. This image that I once called "The Road to No Where" just got a title change... "The Road Home" is what I will be calling this image from now on.
