This is home...

Was away for a few days, had gone home to see my folks. Took this picture from the train as it was creeping into my hometown Nagercoil. Those rolling hills and the green paddy fields are characteristic in my region... I can never tire of this sight. The air is also so clean and inviting, not like the city, clogged with vehicle fumes and dust. Click on the picture for a larger view.

It does look inviting, reminds me of my recent trip to Bali, I stayed up in the mountains, the air was amazingly fresh.
I doubt I would tire of that sight either.

This is indeed home!

Lovely sight and I could almost smell the earth.

Joy always,
Susan

Good morning, Karen!

I recall you coming to visit me! How nice of you to come again, and I am glad you enjoyed this post. I am leaving it up for another week because I am back at school preparing for the first day of school next week, and THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO! I will get back to a normal schedule in about another 2 weeks! But I enjoy blogging and meeting people like YOU from so far away from my home!

ENJOY! Anita

Hi, This is a beauiful place to come "home" to. I can just picture the rain coming into the station and stepping off into clean, fresh air outside. Hmmm, could you send some to us here in Florida? So hot and humid this time of year here. Thank you so much for the beautiful compliments you left on my blog when you came to visit. Please stop by again. I don't have a regular blog schedule but do try to at least do Simple Pleasures on Thursday (Dayle's button is on my sidebar) and Spiritual Sundays. Blessings,
Lynn

There is nothing that tugs at our heart like seeing a familiar sight, heading to a home we love. This is a lovely view.

What a wonderful place to call home. I can just imagine the clean air and the frangrance of the trees on the breeze. x
PS I have worn a sari (and Indian friend had to dress me) and I absolutely loved it, so feminine.
