Journal notation

I'm copying a journal notation from a freebie newspaper called Skirt. I loved it so much - and it could be adapted to just about anyone really. So I'm copying it for a reason. I think that in me, and maybe in a lot of people, there is a dichotomy of "lifestyles" that we'd like. See if you agree.

I want to wake up and walk out my door to a coffee shop on the corner. I want to drop off my dry cleaning on my way to the subway or tube stop. I want to have a book store and a movie theater in my neighborhood. I want to sit in a local bar and have a glass of wine and write in my journal. I want to know the bartender's name and have a bowl of mussels with butter and herbs in broth. i want to wear black and high heels and fake pearls.

On the other hand, I want to own a farm in Kentucky, grow limestone lettuce, adopt a dog and let him run and hunt, listen to rain on a tin roof, raise chickens, drive a pickup truck, sit on the porch at the end of the day and sleep like a baby in a four poster bed that belonged to my grandmother.

Except those two sides of my self will never be fully reconciled, so I live in the between-spaces.

I truly feel about the say way - there are so many cool things about the city that I like (mobs of cars and people aside) but the contrary lifestyle of country living makes me so content and happy.

Glad to know you like it "there". It's fun to find the things you like where you reside.

Today I'm the country gal. Yesterday I was the city girl.

To avoid jet delay and obtaining unwell when traveling by air, make sure to get plenty of fluids. Staying hydrated as you travel will increase your power ranges and fight fatigue. You can always request h2o on board, but it is often simpler to purchase a huge bottle of water when you go through protection. [url=]Cakg44452e[/url]
