I’ve always been someone more appreciative of nature than others. During the winter months back in Vermont, I would look up at the sky and feel a sense of calm. Last night I looked up at the sky and watched the stars as they wheeled in the sky. It reminded of Vermont in winter, the sky crisp and clear.
It is during these moments that I gain a sense of clarity, the world quiet and calm and nothing to bother me. I’ll admit that it wasn’t quite the same. There’s just something about a city that gets you riled up. Some feeling that makes you giddy with the hustle and bustle.
I love both of these extremes, living in a quiet place and visiting relatives in the vastness of NYC. It creates a good balance between the two, being street savvy while still being able to appreciate the harshness and beauty of nature.
