There are two sides to every coin, of course. And if you want one side, you must also take the other. No choice.
We are experiencing the two, to some degree. We came south, to live...exchanging this sweet woodland cabin for something - bigger. Warmer. Crowded.
Sweet Woodland Cabin in the North
This is a summertime photo, clearly, and therefore warm, cozy, even balmy. But wait just a few months and you will have the other side of that coin.
Beautiful, certainly. Space to roam, and people to coffee with while the snow descends and chills the brave wanderer. Wood for the fire, stacked and ready in the early morning frost before the sunrise. Family. Ah, yes - that. Goodbyes that sting the eyes, more than just a little..
But come south, and there is just as much good to say about this beautiful spot (even if I do call it the Asphalt Jungle). It's a pretty amazing place, truth be told. Clear blue skies and a Lake to boot! Early morning walks with a jacket that will surely be shed before the arrival home. And Family. Providence has again blessed us there, and we are all the richer for it.
But, oh yes - the occasional smog, the crowded freeways, the cacophony along the way. The other side of that coin exists here, too. And there are two sides to every coin, you know. So if you want one side, you must also take the other.
