Now, I am NYC-bound, swathed in light layers to keep from sweating my *ss off, adorned with my best jewelry, going over my PowerPoint presentation and wheeling a suitcase that contains my most glam outfits and stilettos. Alone!
The two scenarios couldn't be more different, no?
And yet, they perfectly represent the two sides of my personality. I could spend all day indulging and delighting in every technological innovation that I can employ, socializing non-stop online and then walking through the door of a party and continuing seamlessly IRL.
At the same time, my heart soars when I am hiking through the wilderness and feasting my eyes on the beauty of this Earth around us.
I'm a country mouse who embraces and cherishes my childhood memories of life on the farm, where I explored the springs and fields, picked ticks off the multitude of cats, and thrilled every time I managed to catch a crawdad.
I'm a city mouse that loves the constant hum of people coming and going, the shopping, the cocktails and danceclubs.
I love putting on my boots and following unknown paths through the woods.
