Heeding the soul's call

For several years now, I've felt the call of the mountains seducing me to come 'home'. I was almost there about 6 years ago but that fell apart right along with a devastating breakup. In many ways, I see now why that didn't work out and I also know those were the 'wrong' mountains (for me). I was on the right track but focused on the wrong stop.
