Time changes all things.

The village had grown since the last time I had been home. Gone were the wood cabins and mud-covered adobe homes with their thatched roofs. In their place were houses of solid stone sparkling with crystal accents. Well built to keep out the fickle weather in the region. The wealth from the crystal mines was evident in the materials used by the builders. The stairs to the town center reflected the light off four crystals, each as tall as I was, if not more. The price alone for those was staggering!

Interwove amongst the new were still vestiges of the home I remembered. Between the towering houses stood the trees. I remembered their woven pods swaying in the wind. Still welcoming to weary residents to take a short respite from their toils. Now to hope that even though the town changed, the people still were the same. If not...If they were as changed as the city, I can only hope that in their growth, they too retained a bit of the old and would welcome me home.
