Thoughtful Thursday – City Mouse, Town Mouse

mouseAs I was writing yesterday’s blog post, it occurred to me that I truly enjoy the small town life in a shore town like Bradley Beach, but that I also like the lights of the big city. There’s nice things to be said for both.

The quiet and pace of a shore town is relaxing and frees my mind. The noise and bustle of the city are invigorating and challenging.

I’m lucky to be able to do both – be a city mouse and a town mouse.

How about you? Do you have a preference for one over the other?

  1. I could probably live in a biggish town if it was at the Jersey Shore….

    But I need a yard or at least a view of something green, be it ocean, tree-topped mountain or hills or just grass. If you can have all that and be in a city, well, maybe I could manage.

  2. I am most definitely not a city mouse… I find cities too busy and crowded! I like towns… I may not live in a small town but it is home! 😀

  3. I’m a small town girl. In fact we have only one stop sign. 😯 I would be overwhelmed in a big city!

  4. I’ve always lived in rather large towns. I think I’d like to try the other side of life. I do live on several acres so I can’t smell what my neighbors are having for dinner… But I wouldn’t mind a smaller town. In So. California, I don’t think that is possible.

  5. I have always lived in small towns. When my husband was alive, he worked tunnel construction for many years. Most places we lived were very small . The one exception was Chambersburg, PA. I would be lost and uncomfortable in a big city. Just call me a town mouse. Have a great day and hugs to all.
