Night comes early, and I am amazed that all that often
lights the farm are just 4 lights: our security & porch lights
outside and a kitchen & livingroom light inside. Acres
and acres and just four lights.
When I used to travel to an office in Madison, I would
return late on Thursday night. Knowing how much I
had missed home, Dave would "light" up the farm...
turning on every light ~~ like a beacon.
I like both:
Knowing home by heart...just like I do when I
get up in the middle of the night.
And knowing home by how it reaches out to me
across the fields, lighting the night sky like a shooting star.
Lights will guide you home...
To my Ian... "Lights will guide you home". (Coldplay)
Safe travels my son.
