To my regular readers, Five Favorite Front-Page Features will appear tomorrow as it makes perfect sense with the letter "F". So today being E...I thought of many many words that I could do--from English to Elvis to Emma (the book) to energy and excitement etc. But I have finally decided on escape because it is late and I'm getting this in under the wire--it is tomorrow in like 30 min.
I am calling it escape because that is Provo, Utah to me now. For those of you just meeting me, I live in rural Utah in a little town called Roosevelt. It is little..like very limited shopping and things to do little and everyone knows everyone and everyone's business--kind of. It helps that everyone is related to each other. So when I need big city time and pretty much anything that "normal" people would do I go to Provo. It is my escape. When I first started at my job and trying to adjust to the rural life I lived for my Provo weekends.I could just feel the stress leave and I use to be able to tell in my body when I was almost back to Roosevelt because all of the stress comes back.
Now that I have been out in Roosevelt for about 3 years, it is not such a profound feeling going home but it still is driving in. I love "my mountains" and the hustle and bustle--though I still don't like driving in it. And honestly I don't want to move out of Roosevelt as much as I use to--the little town has really grown on me. And I think part of it is that I do have this escape.
Do you have a place to escape to that lets you really let go of everything?
