I said, I wanna touch the earth. I wanna break it my hands.
I wanna grow something wild and unruly.
I wanna sleep on the hard ground, in the comfort of your arms,
On a pillow of blue bonnets in a blanket made of stars...
Any good romantic gal knows those lyrics - they're from one of my favorite Dixie Chicks song "Cowboy Take Me Away." But while I adore that song and love the idea of getting swept away by a cowboy - I surely DON'T identify with the line:
I DO want to see that - I am absolutely in love with our skyscraper skyline.I mean, I get it - I learned this truth in college, living in a house full of farm girls - the moral of the story in the children's story about the country mouse and the city mouse is something that holds true, universally. If you're born in the country, you love the country. If you're born in the city, you love the city. (For the most part, anyway.) And, yes, maybe it's my urban upbringing that has biased me, but I am in love with cities. Never met a big one I didn't like. I just don't see cities as dirty and loud and dangerous - I see them as edgy, lively... full of magic and life.
