I spent the weekend...

...waxing nostalgic. A friend of mine has a home in Delaware County, NY. It is in an area as rural as the one I grew up in. As a kid I couldn't wait to get out of there, as an adult I appreciate the serenity the solitude provides.

Growing up, I craved the excitement of a big city, the culture, the arts, the food. Having lived here for nine years I was comforted by the peace and quiet of the country, although the food did leave a lot to be desired.

We always want what we don't have.
