Picture to words...6

She had played here as a child.  Her secret place.  Full of wonder and magic.  Now, a woman, she returned.  Tired and broken.

Fragments of the past flash through her thoughts. Memories of  lost dreams, heartaches and pain.  Un-shed tears begin to flow, as she walks through the water, into the falls.  It envelopes her.  Surrounding her like arms of comfort.

She's is startled by the sound of her own laughter.  A bit of the young girl returns and she, once again, feels the magic of this place.  The past is washed away and she realizes, sometimes, you have to go back to move forward.

  4. There is so much truth in those words. Going back, going further, been there and done that many times.
