Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

City Girl vs. Prairie Girl
Now this is not something the prairie has to offer! The view was absolutely breathtaking when I went to the rooftop terrace of my tiny Manhattan hotel. Like so many of my favorite moments, I had the wind in my hair, a sky full of color, and a quiet moment taking in an expansive view.
I used to think I was a pretty good combo of both city and prairie. Maybe I still am ... but I know I am drawn to the vistas and horizons wherever I am and when I'm in a big city, it never feels like home. If I imagine myself living there, it's imagining myself in another phase of life. And this moment, as appreciated as it was, seemed like something that might grow old eventually. I never thought I'd say that - but maybe I think about things a little bit more when I'm alone, or maybe I realize how alone I am and people seem overwhelming, or maybe I'm just not as connected to the citified hopes and dreams I once held, or maybe I'm too tired for the city ... at least right now.
