Cities have a hustle and bustle all of their own, an energy and choices, like 2:00 a.m. coffee and many restaurants to choose from. City dwellers do not understand the appeal that country life with no or little wi-fi, grocery stores miles away and a peace and quiet not found in any corner of a big city. In today’s turmoil and events of the world there is refuge and solace in the country. Watching seeds grow into plants and animals lay in the sun, content. There is always the lure of the city with all of its wonderful choices and great restaurants. There will be a time when the children of the country want to run off to the city, but if your dream is to come to the country, do it.
- Living in the city can be very fun when your young. For us, we love living in the country and having our peace and quiet.
- I could see myself in the city once again. If I was motivated to be there for business or I got bored of our quaint existence.
- I lived in the city for a good portion of my adult life. There were lots of fun things like getting coffee at 2 a.m.
“It has given solace in the midst of unprecedented world events that sadden us, and provided a constant touchpoint to the natural Earth and the processes that have occurred throughout millennia despite man’s many crises.”
