The Road Home

Not many cars travel my road home after sunset.  The road is narrow and curves are almost always in sight.  The foothills of the Appalachians are in the distance, we live on the plateau of one.  I have traveled this road so many times the past 12 years, I can close my eyes and  describe it.  But as many times as I have driven it, there are always surprises.  I seen storms roll across the mountain, plenty of wild animals, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, wild flowers in the spring and leaves of every color in the fall.  I try to never take the road home for granted.


  1. Driving alone on a lonely curvy road after sunset sounds a bit intimidating.It's a good thing to have a fully charged cell phone with you in case you need to call for help.
    Not taking a road for granted is a god idea. Sometimes we get so used to something that we take it for granted.
    Stay safe on that road.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Being alone on a road leaves the opportunity for unique experiences.

  3. Ditto. But I have walked down roads like these, wandering into woods and walking in streams, so I know the pull.
