A living difference

It’s so much different living in the country than living in the city.   In our old home, I could see the neighbors in their back yard sitting and talking on their deck but couldn’t hear them even though they were probably less than 50-60 feet away and now I can often hear our neighbors talking on their deck and they live over 700 feet away through the trees.  Last night, I could see many stars even with the full moon.  In the city, I could see a few stars on a moonless night.  On a moonless night here and looking North away from the lights of Durham, I can see more stars than I’ve seen since my parents had a place in Oriental.   I really am glad we were finally able to make the move!
