As we type this, we're sitting at a desk in a friend's house up in the Berkshires. Outside the hills are rolling green and quiet, with no sound of car or leaf blower or even airplane. We've been up here for the weekend and the environment difference of being this far into country has been remarkable. Our entire system has slowed down and relaxed. Were breathing deeper.

And so we consider the evergreen urbanite question: Could we live here all the time? Perhaps we should move out of the city? Ah, the age conundrum... Do you move completely far away, live outside and commute in each day, or live in the city and visit those who live without? What's your solution?
