Home again, home again, jiggety jog.

We are back from the Grand Canyon and we had a fabulous time. Some photos and stories are here. You’ll have to look at the detail view to get the captions and stories.

This trip has reminded me that as much as I love New York City, a city girl I am not. I think that when our lease is up in April, we’ll be looking for greener pastures – or, really, just pastures. OK. It’ll probably just be half an acre we can barbecue on. But I miss the stars and the smell of fresh air and the sound of crickets at night. Is that so much to want?

    If you can have the city within your grasp but not actually be IN the city, that’s the ideal. Fresh air (does that exist anywhere these days?), wildlife sounds as opposed to urban-life sounds, and actually seeing stars at night (something that is fast-becoming a real luxury due to light-pollution and atmospheric pollution) is a need.

    Good luck with the serach for a non-urban home in the near future!

    Can you really see yourself living in the country? Doesn’t seem like you at all.
