“Show us where your heart is”- Is a near impossible task for me to try and portray with only a few words and images. My heart is scattered throughout space and time, I couldn’t settle on only one place.
I can however show you one of my favorite local places, where a piece of my heart currently and has for many years resided. A place I’ve called home for no better reason other than it knows me as well as I know it. I was born in a remote area in Mexico, in Michoacan, to be a little more exact, but Ennis, and all its nooks and crannies have seen me grow up and unknowingly assisted in shaping who I am today. I’ve always gravitated to this place in particular, since the first time a couple friends and I stumbled upon it. Its been a sort of safe haven, my quite place when I need solitude, or just want to be unbother for a moment. It seems to be hidden in between country back roads and takes a bit of a hike to get there, but the effort is well worth the warm comfort it brings. Whether I visit by myself or with friends, it always offers the same unwinding stillness I crave. Its simplicity has always called my name and been part of its charm, my local getaway never too far from reach.
Everything about it has a calming feel. Maybe it’s just me and my bias opinion, but even the isolated trail leading to the bank has a certain presence, a relaxed undertone that’s begging for you to join.
Even with its simplicity its offered solice and helped create beautiful memories, ideas, and conversations all of which I hold near and dear to my heart. No bells or whistles, nothing too fancy and honestly I wouldn’t want it any other way.
