Feels like my second home. My family is from Texas. I used to go visit cousins and uncles as a kid and listen to tall tales by my Grandfather. Even though my Mother left there before I was born, I’ve always had a connection to it. And I did say “it”! Texas is more than a place, it seems to be alive.
Maybe it is my connection to it or that everywhere you look, history seems to come alive. I’m not sure what the “pull” is but it does. It pulls me in and makes me want to stay.
It holds some very special memories, a link to my past, my best friend, family, and a HUGE piece of my heart.
