I went to a new local restaurant with a friend. And then people started coming in, and I know most of them. Then we heard sounds of an outdoor concert outside, and people started asking what it was, and I not only know who organized it but also one of the musicians in the band, and who started the band many years ago. It’s that guy I blogged about who was child free and then rediscovered himself as a happy family man.

Fifteen years ago, I would have hated it. I would have felt boxed in and provincial. But now I’m loving it. I feel like I’m part of this place.
