I know many people think the country is where it's at, but there's lots of inspiration to be found in the city too. I think community is the most important, wherever you find that.
After six days out in the country on solo retreat, I was happy to be reunited with my lovely husband and see people.

A friend was in town too, so we all hit Greenlake Park (Seattle's equivalent to Central Park) and walked the almost three-mile loop together.
People were out with dogs, moms were with their kids, roller bladers cruised passed us—it was quite busy for a Monday afternoon. We stopped our walk to watch a painter doing a Monet-esque painting of water lilies. I've seen this painter before. He's been slowly working his way around the lake catching all the beautiful seasons and flowers in his work.

We went up to the roof top and spread out on comfy lounge chairs.
I felt happy today.
Happy to have choices.
Happy to connect with people.
Happy to be part of the grand tapestry of life that I have found in the city.
It's good to be back.
To top things off, Yoon and I went out for sushi and to the movies....
Yes, it's true. I'm a city girl through and through. However, I love to visit the countryside, go on hiking trips and adventures. Fortunately, Seattle is surrounded by nature, so I feel like I'm getting the best of both worlds.
Are you a country or a city person?
