For the last two weeks of August , I visited family and friends in Southern Ontario from the farmlands of Tillsonburg to the bustling streets of Toronto. It was a fun time and an experience I would not have wanted to miss. However on my first day back to Verona, I was greeted by the cries of loons, visits to my back door by hummingbirds, our meadow in full bloom and a realization that there really is no place like home.
