Thoughtful Thursday – Do you prefer the city or the country?
Do you prefer the city or the country?
This is a “the grass is always greener on the other side” question in all likely hood. I have lived all my life in the rural countryside. Going to the city is always a treat, a chance to see museums, hear music, eat at different restaurants, shop for things not available in person back home. I dream of having those opportunities available on a daily basis, of having public transit to jump on to take me them. But…, there is always a but, after 7 to 10 days I tire of the dirty, grimy feeling that comes from the crush of people and I start longing for fresher, cleaner air. Still I believe living in a city is something I would find pleasing as long as I could escape to the country from time to time. That and afford a lovely condo in a nice neighborhood. Do not expect to hear that I have relocated anytime soon.
