Spring In her Step

It was the onset of Spring, and she, who made newspaper headlines, had booked a trip to travel with her dog and stay in a tree-house in a nondescript place in one part of the world.

They thought she was crazy to choose to visit that forest to stay there for a week, while the best hotels in cities across the world extended free-stay invites to her.

What they didn't know was she wished to refresh her forgotten memories and regain that spring in her step as her senses announced "SPRING ARRIVES"...

Living in the concrete jungles and always viewing those tall skyscrapers, she had forgotten her identity and her very own real jungle that was once her friend...

She happily soaked in the greenery, earthy smells and the beauty of Spring as she celebrated her homecoming and felt she was reborn as the little girl once again, who had grown up in these very surroundings...

  4. Sounds like a good way of getting back your identity to go back to your roots. That is after all where identity begins.
