It's been awhile since we've had an Audience Participation Day around here, it occurs to me. I seem to have been nattering on about myself (and now, of course, my omnipresent children) without requesting any input from you for quite some time now.
So! Let's talk, my lovelies!
This question was posed the other day by A. to the room at large at the time*: Where would you live if you could live anywhere? And he did mean anywhere. Another country, a private island, whatever.
The MiL actually said she had never thought about it, but on reflection, she said she would stay right in this area. For a lot of reasons.
A. would find the most remote piece of land in the high desert as possible, I think. And high desert (meaning dry, but not really hot) isn't even so much the point as remote. VERY remote.
He would be a mountain man if he could. I, however, have no interest in being a mountain woman, so there's that.
I don't have a specific place in mind, though I do love the climate of the high desert as well--oh, how I love and miss dry air--so that part is okay. But I think I would like to live somewhere where I could have some property without close neighbors, but not so remote that buying milk requires a 30-mile drive over an unimproved road in a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
I've been to those areas of the west, you see, and I want nothing to do with that kind of isolation, thanks.
So I don't know where that place is, exactly, but let me know if you live there and I'll come visit.
Okay! Your turn! Where would you live if you could live anywhere your little heart desires?
* Which consisted of the MiL and me, because our rooms are actually not all that large or full of people.
