It was my husband who first pointed them out to me. He had told me one day that we were twelve minutes from home and he could tell because the wind turbines were just to our left. It was interesting, because he didn't pay attention to the actual mile markers, he paid attention to the landmarks surrounding them. He was so familiar with this road that he knew, just by seeing them, how close he was to home. I began to take notice of them too, and I realized that almost everyone I talked to had a story that was similar. Not with the same objects, but the same connection to the landscape or the elements of the landscape. It's a human tendency to see something that may have been there for years before them and connect with it a feeling of relief:
They are only so far from home.
