Friday Fun Video: Can We Go Home AGain?

Photo taken by my father fishing in the Elk Valley

My father fishing in the Elk Valley many years ago

The video produced by the folks of Elkford B.C. Canada tweaked  a nostalgic region in my heart, and made me grin.  Elkford exists in  coal mining country in Southeast British Columbia, near the Alberta Border.   Being raised in the area, the scenery is familiar, and the wilderness a reminder of a camping trips far from Sparwood, my home.  Elkford community was after my time, but the geography is the same.   Visit my childhood with me?

Returning to my rearing ground many times over the years, I felt like a fist pulled out of a bucket of water.  When I left,  Sparwood filled in the hole like I was never there.  A few dear friends remain but our lives have kept us far afield, and the visits occur in a venue much changed.  Have you tried to go back to a special place and found it lovely but no longer yours?

Thankfully, new places become special and the poignant massage fades.
