Pilgrimage

Sunday Scribblings offers the prompt Pilgrimage, asking: "Is there something you'd like, in your lifetime, to go far to see?"
I would go far...

to see my cottage on a winding small road in the Loire Valley, with one door, one window to each side, windowboxes massed with exuberant red flowers. It is the cottage where I lived in imagination when I was a student of la belle langue.

It is there, and it is mine.
If I saw it, and touched its sun-scented warm stone walls, it would know me.
