Just spent a week in Connecticut and Massachusetts. I spent most of my growing up years in Vermont, have lived in Mass, NH, and Maine, where my parents live now. There’s something about NE that feels like home. The houses, the terrain, the temperature. It all gives the feel of home, even though I have only lived 2 years in NE in the last 20. Even the Red Flops 5 game loss to the Yankees at home made me feel like I had never left.
We spent 2 days with friends who live north of Boston. To me, this is quintessential NE. The water, the houses, the beauty all around.
I wonder if others have this experience too. I guess its a taste of Heaven, when we finally feel at rest and at home with the Lord.
