Back is the prompt word for Five Minute Friday. It reminds me of a song called I’m Back, by Roger Whitaker, from his television special in 1983. He had returned to Kenya, the place of his birth to share a musical safari. Along with footage of his trip he sang songs of the people, places and things he remembered. Our family enjoyed watching it and you can find it on You Tube.
Coming Back Home

Of course the place of my birth doesn’t really seem like home, and there is no family there. The place I grew up doesn’t really seem like home any more either, because I’ve been gone so long. Though there is some family there.
Home now is a log house in upstate South Carolina near the Blue Ridge foothills. We have lived here for over 20 years and it feels like home. Though it’s got a lot of clutter right now, it is still nice to come back after being away. Everything is familiar. Here is a post that includes a poem about traveling and always returning home.
Back to Favorite Vacation Spots
Of course there are vacation places we have visited that we love to go back again and again.

Here’s a photo I took one Fall while traveling on the Smoky Mountain Parkway.
One of the favorite places to go back to is my brother-in-law’s house on a lake in Maine. They are so generous and have had lots of people stay there for vacations. We have been there three times and would love to go back even though it is miles away from South Carolina.
