Off to the grocery store ..it makes me realize how lucky we are in this nation. the choices are overwhelming. So much abundance of everything. Then we are constantly searching for something new or different. Ask & someone will either take you to it or order it for you.
Yes in other countries they eat differently, use foods we declare exotic, but to those folks it is what they have or have used forever.
We are a restless inquiring people. Some great aspects to that..we can learn about other countries, societies, and foods. Yet sometimes being restless leads to being rootless with no sense of belonging anywhere & endless searching for that Shangri La where you will belong.
I know the time I spent as a long haul driver introduced me to America, not just the state or town I live in but the nation I claim as my home. Traveling like that you honestly see the best & the worst of humanity. Also the beauty if this nation from shore to shore and boarder to boarder.
Mmm see what happens when it rains & I am tired..I get all serious & introspective.
All I am saying is we are blessed with abundance & beauty in this nation.
Let's all appreciate it and be thankful 😊
