This is the day I crossed back into the land of my youth: Kentucky. Every time I come back home, I am filled with such powerful and conflicting emotions. They are difficult to describe, but I will try to do so in a later post after I return home sometime on Tuesday night or Wednesday afternoon (depending upon which way the wind and spirit blow). For now, I leave you with a couple of pictures taken on the Bluegrass parkway on the way to Mom’s house from Lexington. Following that are a series of photos I took of the sunrise over a small pond near Lawrenceburg, KY.
In case you’re interested, I am writing this post in a little coffee shop in Springfield, KY called “Holy Grounds.” It has wireless. You know the world has changed when a place like this can exist and thrive in a small Kentucky town like Springfield.

Beautiful pix, Will, especially the one of the mist over the pond. I think I understand your feelings about returning to Kentucky. Whether or not I ever choose to live there again, it’s still home…I’m drawn to the uniqueness, the beauty, the people, even just the names of the places there. It’s a very welcoming place.
Lawrenceburg – in fact, any spot along the Bluegrass Parkway, especially around the Kentucky River – is beautiful beyond words (and I’ll never be able to think of the BGP as the “Martha Layne Collins Parkway!”).
Thanks for the photos. My hubby & I are traveling back to KY in late May. I’m looking forward to spending a week there.
