This is a bit of a non-traditional entry for me in comparison to my usual. It is composed of several pics/poems-prose from a much larger collection that I created several years ago. I figured I’d just post a few for those who might appreciate them. After living in FL for almost 19 years, separated from my beloved mountains and visiting rarely, I began to yearn for my "northern refuge"; to forever be deep in their heart where I now live. These pieces and many others served as a mode of expression that enabled me to cope while I tried to return "home".
