Yankee Homecoming

There’s a visit to New England on the horizon.  It was home for most of thirty years so there’s still a palpable tug at the heartstrings when the places, people and events that defined young adulthood, middle age and, ahem, senior citizen-ness loom so large.  They say that the childhood years are the formative ones but the ones starting with 3 and 6 make a pretty big impression as far as I’m concerned.

There’s a fair amount of excitement around the old hacienda as we anticipate revisiting old haunts and good friends.  Thoughts of the great northeast as fall approaches prompt this sampler of images that say New England to me.
