I see people packing their bags, getting ready to visit family, while I sit alone rekindling all my fond memories from back home. Home is too far, and however much I may enjoy travel, there is a part of me that misses home, especially at these times. But you convince yourself that it’s a choice you made, for the better, and then look around at the beauty that stares at you. You pick up the phone and speak to your loved ones, sometimes they wish just that, to hear your voice and nothing else, and they read your mind without you even saying a word. They know you are happy. You put the phone down, and smile at the kids waving goodbyes. Then you cuddle in your sweater with a cup of hot cocoa just staring at the beautiful colors of Fall. You know you are happy.
Fall always brings in a charm. For me, it means taking in all the beauty and happiness and the last bit of sunshine that I get before winter sets in. I love to take long lazy walks during the Fall season, collecting leaves, looking at Halloween décor and children playing with the fallen leaves. I can comprehend how Robert Frost would have felt like in the rustic New England charm, it is indeed inspiring.
This post covers some pictures I took during one of these walks, around the Halloween time and what brings a smile to my face are the carved out pumpkins sitting at the doorsteps of quaint houses, almost reminding me of Frost’s famous ‘Ghost House’.
Those of you who haven’t read Frost’s poems, I suggest try at least one, sitting by yourself with nature, it makes you appreciate the beauty. My other favorites by Frost include ‘The road not taken’ and ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening’. Do read them if you haven’t yet for the magical, romanticized New England. Happy Thanksgiving!
My name is Lovya. I left home when I was 17, to study and pursue my dream of being an Engineer, which I am now! But my love for travel never parted with me and even as I grow older, I know there are places and adventures in the world which I have to see. It feeds my soul in a unique way. This blog is a means for me to share my travel stories and hear about your experiences.
