We’re back from spending a hectic 48 hours in a regional city. It was awesome, the weather was great, the selection of activities was amazing and I also snuck in some shopping at the retail giants.
It’s nice though returning to our small town and appreciate the stillness that comes with it.
We’re heading into Melbourne this week and I’m literally bracing for the onslaught of noise and crowds. I’m becoming much more of a quiet seeker in my aging years. We lived for nearly a decade right in the middle of Melbourne and thought nothing of the constant light, noise, people pressures. But now we’ve embraced the regional life it’s changed our thoughts completely on what makes a great day out.
Do we really need to be so overly stimulated? I certainly don’t take it well anymore. I crave the quiet and time to think and not be rushed.
