Whatâs more important? Peace of mind in the country or being âa slave to a wage.â in the city? What are the advantages of each? I have one foot in the city but prefer to have both feet in the country. What if I canât âsurviveâ in the country? A septic problem â oh my gosh â I call my apartment manager when the toilet overflows!!! Is there a Starbucks in the country? Can I trade my designer shoes for work boots? Just venting but appreciate comments. Country soul, city heart.
