And just where is that you may ask. I’m a small town girl from the prairies and proud it. I have a very hard time imagining ever having to live in a city. Don’t get me wrong I have done it. Three years in fact to get some big city education. Got to say I left as soon as I could and never looked back. I do love quick visits if it includes visiting my kids or a quick shopping trip but I can’t stay long. Too much stress. Too many people and traffic. Noise, pollution and people who don’t seem to be much concerned about what happens outside the city. I resent that I am forced to the city for specialists, shopping and any government business I might need to access. Give me small town living where I know pretty much everyone I meet on the street and their family histories. Five minutes to pick up milk if you don’t stop to talk. Intelligent well versed people who have a broad understanding of how the world works, as in where their food comes from and their oil. They value a good basic education, clean air and friends and neighbors who come to your aid whenever you need them. I don’t farm but I do understand that early march calves are not good when you still have 3 feet of snow on the ground. I look forward to a great evening out with my book club friends as we discuss current literature. Politics are hands on and everyone pitches in to get things done. Life is more deliberate here, more interactive with those around you. Can’t think of a better way to live.
