The lights of Fayetteville
Being in the military I spend a lot of time away from home. There are days that all I can do is miss it. I think back onto the last time I visited and smile to know that it is still home. I always approach Fayetteville, AR at night. the sight of Old Main (Right skyline) and the university campus, to me, is like welcoming arms unfolding to embrace me. I grew up very family oriented. some people claim that they don't feel the separation, possibly because that connection was never there, or maybe I'm just too dependent on my family for support. In any case today is one of those days that I miss what will always be my home. It may not be the most beautiful city, or the most productive, but my family holds my heart and home is where the heart is.
