"There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home..."
Several years ago I was on a puddle jumper from Cincinnati to Lexington. As we were landing at the Bluegrass Airport, we were coming in from the North. As we approached, we were flying over Calumet Farm, the famous throughbred horse farm in Fayette Co, home to at least six Kentucky Derby winners.
The plane was very low, as the run way is directly across the highway from the farm. The passengers on the plane were all pressed against the window glass. Below us was a group of horses running under the plane, their beautiful sleek bodies stretched out in full stride against the brilliant green grass. Running, racing towards the blinding white washed fences trying to out run the plane.
There is nothing as beautiful as the central Kentucky bluegrass.
It is only when what we love is missing from our lives that we fully realize that what we love is also what we take for granted.
Never take beauty or love or being too familiar for granted.
This is my oasis....
