A foray into the unknown…

November 22, 2010

Yesterday we took a family drive into the country.

Well, we tried to. Whether we reached ‘the country’ or not is a point of debate. We definitely drove on some country roads, and they did seem to be taking me homeward. Maybe we didn’t drive far enough.

It felt like sprawl. Much lower population density and more trees, but still a sprawl. No wilderness, no forest. The long tendrils of the city extended beyond Damascus and the hamlet of Beavercreek.

A hamlet is defined as a small village. Traditional English: a village without a parish of its own.

To my surprise and delight, A echoed my thoughts. “If I’m going to live in the country, I don’t want to see my neighbors. I want space to roam and actually feel isolated.”

So five acres isn’t enough. The 40 acres outside of Silverton is sounding better and better. Time to take another drive!
