I saw a friend last night who lives in Iceland and was visiting for a short time. He calls New England the promised land because someone he met in L.A. (a successful doctor living in a mansion overlooking the Pacific ocean) gave this place that name.
Do we love our home land more than other people? I am tied to tradition and ritual certainly and I love this place, but I am just one guy. I like hearing that other people have the same feeling but I can see the other side of the conversation too.
I am not looking forward to winter....
Great drive/ride/walk to work today.
