You can absolutely go home again.
What an absolutely beautiful and moving story. You describe so well what a single element—such as a backyard, simply consisting of a plot of dirt and grass, can immediately instill such a strong feeling of nostalgia...and instantly being flooded with those memories.
Your stories are films Debra. Each and every one you not only hear but experience the scenes so clearly. Which actually could lead me into a whole other idea of what could be.
Awe Deb, these stories are so heart warming and honest. I can't get enough. Please write more!!!!!
Good heavens — another arrow through my heart. Right through my heart.
