the scenic route

I'll retire in 107 days. Dorothy and I will have to continue to drive to Tahlequah often for breakfast just to enjoy the view. As the sun rises and lights the hills and valley my senses are seduced. I grew up in southern California and my view of the sky was filtered through a haze of smog. There is no blue like the skies of northeast Oklahoma. I had never seen the shade of green that emerges in the spring on the trees of the Ozarks. There has never been a place for me on this planet, but this? This is home.
