'N' is for Nostalgia


Sometimes, after all the hustle & bustle, we just need a bit of simplicity of home.

Nostalgia - Etymology from Wiktionary:
From
Late Latin nostalgia from Ancient Greek *νοσταλγία (nostalgia), from νόστος (nostos), “‘a return home’”) + ἄλγος (algos), “‘pain, suffering’”).

Thank you Mrs. Nesbitt for ABC Wednesday.

Thank you all for your nice comments!
I was thinking that Nostalgia was a stretch for the photo - but as I was scanning through my recent snaps, this one really appealed to me & gave me a feeling of missing home.
