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.
