Yellow Brick Road

From the little work desk at the office on a rainy Saturday afternoon, I logged onto my facebook account to update my status. From the status feeds I see that my friend - and now Student Activities Director at Lees-McRae College -posted new photos from the Homecoming parade in Banner Elk, NC. This morning, friends and loved ones marched on a gloriously sunshine-y day to the theme of "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" theme for this year's homecoming.
I swear, I live in hands down, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places on this planet. And yet, when I see those smiles faces and those hillsides of the Appalachians, I feel so homesick.
