Slower & Simpler - In The City?

Visiting in Boston in the very midst of the city, makes me appreciate how much easier it is to think and live the slower and simpler life when NOT in a city. The constant traffic noise is unsettling to my rural and island ears. It seems that everything here is on fast mode.

Oh, and the drivers? Aggressive is about the only way to describe them.  I'm used to Seattle traffic, but it doesn't hold a candle to what appears to me as rude and inconsiderate (they see it as normal).

I have so much more appreciation of the quiet, friendly island I'm calling home. Sometimes one needs a little distance to really understand and embrace life's treasures.
