You have used a Swiss icon of sorts as a great backdrop for mixed emotions.

Learned a new word: alpenhorn. I had seen them and heard them (or recordings of them) but didn't know what they were called. I can hear the deep breath of your (then) new home and the echo of Carolina in the morn. Ah to be in Switzerland on a Sunday morning! Breathe in its cool clean air, enjoy it, then exhale back here so we can all have a few of those cool molecules.
