The house on the corner on the way to school

This little painting is going home.  That makes me happy
because it's of a house I passed every time I was driving
to school north of the city.  Way north -- about an hour's
drive.  When I'd see this house on the corner about
four blocks from the entrance into the college's driveway
I'd breathe a sigh of relief.  I was almost there.

All I had to do was drive past security, show my pass,
park my car, walk the four or five blocks from the
parking lot, walk very fast through the school, and
go to class.  Whew.

I loved teaching up in the country, getting to see
all the seasons.  And I love teaching in the city,
because it's close.  But I miss the views of these
country houses.

Have an enjoying where you are day.,
