Missing the Southern Life When Trapped in a Big City

I live in a big city in the Middle East. This city has it’s good points, but I find myself missing the beauty and peaceful feeling of a small town.

When I was a kid, I never realized how lucky I was to grow up without noise, crowds, pollution and rudeness.

How I miss the open spaces, the sound of the crickets chirping at night, seeing all the stars in the clear night sky, the mountain fresh air…

I miss people who knew that it’s rude to stare. I miss the iced tea, the fresh roasted peanuts, and people who didn’t mind doing their own gardening!

And above all, I miss the people who go out of their way to help someone when they need it. Oh sure, they may gossip about you later, but until your crisis passes, they will hav your back!

Small town life…miss you more all the time…
