From that point on I pass lots of barns, some chicken farms and orchards.
And these views.
Then I reach my friend's parents' home and walk out on their balcony to see these views.
I sat on the porch on this late Sunday afternoon and soaked in these views and felt refreshed and uplifted. There is some serious yin and yang in my soul when it comes to city or country living. I love the convenience, centrality, and comfort of city living, but whenever I hit the country I breathe more freely, I pause and listen more intently and I feel renewed by nature. I just want both of those gifts in ONE location.
In the meantime, I have to makes room for wide-open spaces in my life. And views like this. Otherwise, I go a little crazy.
