Thoughts about Templeton Farm


This thought has crossed my mind several times in recent weeks, but usually when I am driving, and not able to write something.

I realized at and after cidering that in a very substantial way, Templeton Farm for me has a "rooted" quality and association- like a home that is stronger roots than anyplace that I am more formally "from" (the area around my home was unrecognizable to me even the last time I briefly stopped through, which was 15 years ago, so I can only imagine what it is like now).

Life has had so many changeables- marriage, divorce, career triumphs and career setbacks, unpredictable and unsettling world events- but steady through it all is that very special place that your family has built and nurtured (and that in turn has nurtured your family) for so long, and that I am honored to have in some way (however minor) been a part of/ had a connection with. When I am there, or even pass by on my way to or from somewhere else, it's a powerful reminder that whatever else seems amiss in the world or in life, there are some special places and people that are powerfully, positively, rock solid in their goodness.
