Barbara Muir © 2011The trip from Toronto to my mother's house in
Ottawa is so carved in my soul that I feel like
I know every house, every tree along the way.
Of course I don't. And one of the great things
about traveling, even a familiar route, is that
everything changes all the time, and there are
wonderful surprises along the way. This is
a scene on the road from Kingston to Ottawa.
The entire trip takes about five hours with stops
for coffee, and food. But it always feels so good
to be moving towards the familiar.
Have a going-home-to-see-Mom day.
