In Columbia and Greene counties in New York today house hunting. Though the prospect of making a move to a location two hours outside of New York City is a bit frightening (I've moved away three time before and always come back to being a resident of one of the five boroughs), I recognized how different I feel when I'm up there. There's more of a sense of ease. There's both the opportunity and the strong desire to take notice of all that surrounds me there: from the breathtaking views of the Catskills to the vibrations of the cicada songs.
