Maybe You Can Go Home


Ol' Thomas Wolfe claimed you can never go home. Frankly, I believe it's just all in how you describe "home." 

I'm going to Florida in a few days. Tampa. I lived there from the time I was seven years old until about two years ago when I moved to Great Britain. 

Going back to Tampa won't be going home, although I'll be glad to see old friends, two-legged, three-legged and four. Coming back to Dorset in a couple of weeks will. Pliny the Elder is credited with, "Home is where the heart is." I'm with Pliny.

Give us peace on earth and end this dreadful, dreadful war.
