“Home is everything you can walk to.” ~Jerry Spinelli
Remember when taking a summer vacation wasn’t considered a risk? There’s no denying that COVID-19 has changed how and where we travel. And with another variant of the virus on the rise, many people are opting to hang out on their own deck or patio.
It’s a good time to rediscover the attractions of your hometown — and reboot your sense of community. Is there an outdoor cafe, farmers’ market, boutique, bakery, park, or nature trail you haven’t visited near your neighborhood? A small change of scenery will do you a world of good — and benefit your local economy. ~CL
