Town? Country?

One of peace, solitude

Wonderful vistas

Leafy woods, shimmering lakes, rolling fields

Solitude and peace and boredom

.

One of excitement, sociable

Wonderful vistas

Vibrant shops, social venues, neon clubs

Excitement and crowds and boredom

.

Or suburbia, sociable solitude

Wonderful vistas

Near shops, near woods, on the edge

Best of both worlds and still boring.

Excellently put. I often feel it's all the same -- or I guess I'm the same wherever I am.

True: I think the suburbs can come off as feeling a bit false, rather than the best of both worlds. Somewhere in between, or every other day, might be nice.
