belong - five minute Friday
I walked round the block tonight and it was a very different view from my usual farm animals and mountains. The view of suburbia was distracting, I noticed the houses that were nicely painted and the yards full of beautiful blooms. I noticed the houses that were in need of a paint job and their yards with bushes left unpruned. And I wondered do I belong here? I am only here for a vacation, but they are good to try a lifestyle on for a week, right? Do I belong where I can smell the salt in the air, or where the air is clear and always dry, dry, dry? Do I even belong in this land where the flags are striped and starred in red, white and blue? Where the sky is blue instead of grey and the grass is coarse instead of soft and green.
