Ode to New England
Greetings from New England. It's where I grew up, the place that formed me. Since becoming a father, I've been spending more time here. After leaving for a while, I realized there was much more I enjoyed (and missed) about this place than I disliked.
From the rolling hills to the quaint coastal towns, there's an enchanting quality to this part of the country.
One of my favorite experiences is driving along the winding roads of rural Vermont. The fall foliage is stunning, with fiery reds and brilliant oranges adorning the hillsides. I always feel like I'm in a Monet painting, surrounded by breathtaking beauty and color.
Another area that stands out to me is Boston. The city's rich history is fully displayed, from the Freedom Trail to the USS Constitution Museum. Walking through the narrow streets of Beacon Hill, with its brick-lined sidewalks and gas lamps, is like stepping back in time.
And, of course, commentary on New England would only be complete with indulging in some of its famous seafood. Lobster rolls in the summer and clam chowder in the winter are unforgettable. Almost heavenly.
I once bid farewell to this charming region, but my heart would ache, longing to return. New England will always have my heart. I feel so lucky to have the chance to experience its beauty again.
