I am reminded

I have lived in Ontario's Near North for almost 20 years, but you only have to be away from it for a little while to forget how different it is from the places where most people live.

My stay in SW Ontario has been in a merely medium-sized city, in a pretty quiet neighborhood, and the windows of my office overlook a very fine garden.

But a flying visit to the Near North reminded me that at home it is QUIET and the nights are DARK and from my front door the sightlines are LONG. Not to mention being able to see the Milky Way.
