Can you imagine living like this? Being in no real hurry. Living a life where people are more important than things. A life full of little moments of truth, not a sprint toward some uncertain future. Wow! I am rooting for this small town. No doubt in my mind they saw me as someone just passing through. I will be forever grateful for my temporary respite from my much too busied life. I won't soon forget this town's warm and welcoming spirit and character.
I wanted to yell, "I want some of this! I need some of this in my life!" But that would have been much too city slicker behavior. So for now, I will lean on my memory and try with all my might to find that feeling again upon my return to other side of my life at home.
