Time for Tell Me!
But first I'll tell you...
10:00 pm, on my 10th or so country evening. Clint is working, the telly is O-F-F, and there's a summer rain in this countryside.
I stepped out on the porch, to hear a din of insects and amphibians. Crickets, locusts, and tree frogs harmonize with rain on leaves, from the forest across the street. Thunder rumbles in the background, and we have a new neighbor, a screech owl that sends chills up your spine as it flies to and fro.
We are surrounded on 3 other sides by a soybean field, and the moisture has kept fireflies up past their usual hour.
What I am witnessing here is a concert and a light show.
For this one minute, I want you to feel this. I wish you were me.
I want to know: What are YOUR "You should be me" moments? Spectacular views, thrilling rides, rewards for hard work?
Tell me: When would you have wished us in your shoes?
