The dark is warm, enveloping, comforting. Cricket and coyote sounds surround me. The moon is small, blurry with clouds…and my imperfect vision. There are no people to bother me and I am at peace….at home. I love my college. We have a beautiful campus. But it’s not home. There are always people….never a chance to lose myself in the sky. Never the waves of cricket and coyote noises rolling over me. I am glad to be home. At home I can lay on the grass in our yard and watch the stars move across the sky. I can drink in the warmwet air. I can relax.

  1. Love the imagery you incorporate in this post, even if it is a bit bittersweet. Glad you have the experience of college and the comforts of home, despite not being able to possess both at the same time.

  2. Thank you! It is a lovely experience, although, as you said, bittersweet. I am sure you will love college! Perhaps for you it won’t be as bittersweet as it is for me.
