Home Sweet Home

"Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, 
but not our hearts." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

It was a whirl wind trip to California. I've been in five airports in the past three days, and while it's always exciting to discover new places, it always feel great to come home. Today, between 4:00 am and 4:00 pm, I flew over the Pacific, the Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, and the Great Plains. Yet when we finally circled Chicago before heading north along the shore of Lake Michigan, that warm feeling of home came over me. Still, during my brief layover at O'Hare, I felt that familiar urge to hop on a plane to Paris. Yet fifteen minutes later, when we touched down in Milwaukee, it sure felt good to be home!
