Cities are easy. Easy to get what you need – food, hardware, movies, whatever. Not so easy to get around in though. But it’s comfortable. We stay in a nice house in a nice quiet neighborhood. There are great people to meet and enjoy here. Places to play, things to see and do.
But home on the ranch is just more interesting. The birds, the animals – good and bad, the plants, the “stuff” we have to do just to live there, like making sure we have water in the tanks, pumping water if we need it, making sure we have gas in the tanks, monitoring the electricity from the PV system. The stars at night. Always the stars. It’s the overriding feature of our home. There is always something to do, just living.
