love the feeling of community where my grocer knows me by my first name and I can wake up with a cup of coffee and sit under my carport to view the beautiful sunrise over the sugar cane fields. Watching all kinds of birds and hearing their song from cardinals, to blue jays and the tiny hummingbirds who come zipping around to visit my feeder every year. Going to lunch on Sunday mornings after church with my family and enjoying fellowship with friends at one of many great restaurants in town. Walking across the old bridge into my town whose beauty and flavor has to be seen to and felt to be believed. Watching the Christmas and Mardi Gras parades held every year and enjoying the music at the Crawfish Festival. Going to the citywide garage sale and finding all kinds of neat things to buy and finally just living in peace in the country while having the city only a couple of miles away. Paradise? I know so.
