Mesmerized Sight

Blue Ridge Mountain High
Pisgah Forest Starlit Nights
Moonlight “Some-mores”

Some of my best memories of ten years of summer camp directly involved hiking and camping in the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina. Surrounding the campfire, telling ghost stories, roasting marshmallows, eating some-mores while watching the brillant nightly show of twinkling stars, I felt I was close to heaven!

    Those camps and picnics that we went to in childhood never leaves us.. isn’t it?

    I still cherish the days spent in Jim Corbett Park when I was 11 perhaps! My mom was worried sick about her only daughter being away from her the 1st time and stuff and I had a time of my life! She rightly conclude that I can take many things in my stride without feeling attacked.. See, how a simple memory gave way to a complex one!

    Wonderful word play Dear One.. Lovely
    Hugs xoxox

    Lovely. I want to be there. And a new way of looking at “some-more’s.” Rather than the greedy, yummy s’more’s, how about some more beauty and heaven.
