When I was growing up, I lived in a very small town and I couldn’t wait to get out of it. 18 couldn’t come soon enough. But after I left I noticed something that I never had before. My hometown is beautiful. I suppose it took some miles between us to notice little things like that.
My family always liked to take “the scenic route” everywhere and I never understood why. I do now. Because cities aren’t scenic, they are man made and unfriendly, whereas the country is natural and inviting.
Did I mention I get the best sleep of my life there? I think it’s bc it is so dark (I can actually see stars). Glorious!
