Missing You All

The thing about the holidays being over is that when the guests have all gone back home, and only memories remain, their places around hearth and home are missed terribly...

“When Christmas bells are swinging above the fields of snow, we hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago, and etched on vacant places are half-forgotten faces of friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.” ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

A beautifully framed and composed shot Glenn! Full of longing and sweet sorrow at their departure. Well done! ;-)

We know the ache of the empty house and the quietness, and your empty bench says it all.
