My Home in the Berkshires........Part Seven

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

So I have now been in the Berkshires for eight plus years. In that time I have learned about my area and about myself. I have suffered loss and enjoyed joy. My home is essentially done and I enjoy it. I have learned a lot about gardening and have created a space outside that brings me satisfaction and pleasure. I have found joy in simple things and learned being in the moment matters.

The Berkshires is a unique area. There are many seasons here and sometimes all in one day. I never want for something to do, and I have also decided that is is OK to do nothing at all. Small town living suits me. I enjoy trips to the post office because there is no mail delivery here. I have gotten used to going to the dump often because there is no trash pickup here either. People notice one another in small towns.

So Michael, this is why I have chosen to live in the Berkshires. I hope you have enjoyed sharing my journey. Each of us is the only one who can truly understand why we wind up where we do. I am home.

The end.

Sheila, small towns aren't cut out for everyone...it means a simpler life. It means compromising on some "amenities", but it also means the world to some of us who get it. You and I do, and frankly, I'm darned happy it ISN'T for everyone because they wouldn't be small, like we like 'em!!!

Hello again Gayle. Exactly right. I think we may appreciate the lifestyle more because we have known another. You are always welcome in my little corner of the world.      Sheila
