My Heart’s in the Highlands

…and oh, how much I’m longing to get away. To go on a road trip, with mountains ahead and the thrilling signs saying,”THE NORTH”,
a sight that always swings my inner compass back into place. Home.
(though I’m not from the far north, but maybe an ancestral memory…?)
To sleep under clear starry skies and swim in cold lochs. To see old friends and talk late into the night.
But home is also where the heart is and, travelling restrictions aside, ours needs us at the moment.
