Ms

I love them all. Landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes and foodscapes

1) The Grand Canyon
2) The Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC
3) The Atlantic-side beach in Barbados
4) Grilled pork with Papas a la Huancaina (Peruvian potatoes with a spicy, creamy sauce)

I often feel like being holed up in a small mountain cabin away from civilization somewhere in the middle of Montana, for instance. I would require internet access, however.

I get Internet access when I'm at Lake of the Woods (Birch Beach--middle of nowhere, northern MN) using my Mi-Fi. Mind you, not every day, but if I were to live there, I would be able to get more reliable Internet. Not about to happen, but...

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.
