Even though I spent more than half my life as a city dweller in Washington, DC, my roots and heart are in the country. I love the denseness of all the trees and other vegetation, along with the assorted wildlife that call that area home.
One of my most treasured parts of our way of life is the peacefulness and solitude that blankets us when night falls. And the night sky...ahhhh, what a thing of beauty! Especially when the moon is full. I dearly love the soft blue light the moon washes everything in when it is full.
When I lived in the city, night was never dark. There was always the "glow" of the city lights. As for peace and solitude, that was broken on a regular basis by the Medivac helicopter flying over doing its job.
I much prefer "visiting" the city and, then, "living in the woods with the bears." No bears here, though, just coyotes and a few wildcats.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
