dreamy town

headed home to dreamy town
my heart and soul are there
it's just a sleepy little burg
with a homey, quiet air

the homes are closely nestled
together on a hill
the people recognize me
it's such a welcome thrill

children's voices call me
aunt julie, play a game
what blessed reassurance
that everything's the same

mom is in the kitchen
and dad is in his chair
my siblings' love surrounds me
oh what a love we share

delicious food and laughter
a trivia game to play
my soul sighs in satisfaction
oh how i want to stay

goodbye my special dreamy town
i'll say a little prayer
that when i next come visit
i'll find my solace there

happy thanksgiving, all!!

There is something of a "Russian" flavour to this artwork. Dreamy indeed! Home is where the heart is and these homes look like they are full of heart. How blessed you are to have everyone together and happy in dreamy town...

The houses in your "dreamy town" are so so wonderful, Julie. I agree there is something rather Russian about them.

Beautiful art. I like the paintings with the houses. I like the textured paintings.
