Country living is so hard.
Country living, there’s nothing to do, they say.
They are in the country lifestyle for the first time.
For the first time experiencing;
the bugs chirping at night,
the mountains around them,
fields and farmers on either side.
For the first time,
they don’t lock their doors when they leave the house.
For the first time they experience something different,
and they are surprised.
For the first time, I feel at home.
I feel as close to home as I can be, yet as far away as I am.
For the first time I feel sad.
I have been away a long time,
but never to a place so close to home.
