I'll have more to say on roots, I think, in the next few blips. For now I want to say, that for me, being in an environment I have grown up in is like watering my roots. When I feel like I am floundering, or lost, or just simply out of sorts, then to just take a drive in familiar land brings me peace.
[Wow, one year ago! So much has happened. I think I love the One Year Ago icon because of how it puts the year into focus for me :) ]
