|Almost, I am convinced to be a Utahn|
Aug. 14th, 2008 at 12:10 pm
Every Summer my wife and I do our pilgrimage to Utah to visit family, attend family reunions, etc. We just returned from our annual visit. Usually I am convinced that I could never live in Utah after each visit and more than happy to go back to Boston. However, this visit, for the first time I thought “I could live there”. Here’s why I could live there:
1) My kids would have a much better chance of having friends with good values
However, after I thought more about it, I really could not live there, here’s why:
1) My wife and I would have a much poorer chance of having great friends
Nonetheless, after 15 years of living away from Utah, I am beginning to appreciate the good that is there to the point that I could almost, almost imagine living there. Who knows, another five years and the good may far outweigh the bad. Getting old does funny things to you.
