Snapshot


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.
