I am from Idaho... I was raised there until 7 years ago when I ventured out and wound up in NJ. I lived in Southern Idaho. Twin Falls, Burley, Rupert area. There are a lot of things I miss, but I don't miss the snow!!!
Wow Jim, I didn't know you were a poet. There's some pretty deep stuff there. It gets difficult to let the heavy things keep from getting you down. I write too. I find it to be a healthy way to deal with it. Most of the best poetry and song lyrics come from a place of sadness or pain.
