Hey, it’s good to be back home again!

I think it was John Denver who had a big hit with a song by the same title, and I have to agree with his sentiments completely. It is good to be back home again! 


Another cottage/lake season has come to a close, and we have moved back home to northern Illinois. The beginnings of true fall weather are upon us, and it’s good to be under our own roof once again. The suitcases have been unpacked, the summer clothes have been stored away, and the writing room and desk are looking like the old, familiar friends they are. It feels wonderful to sit here, with good light and comfort, and type away.


 Though the summer was wonderful, providing me with much grist for my mill, I’m happy that the golden cornfields out back and in all the surrounding area are showing their autumn colors as harvest approaches. There’s comfort in all of that…CortlandWriter
