Favorite City . . .

The prompt says to describe my favorite city and the truth is that I have none.  I love my hometown, but I could walk away without feeling too sad.  It isn’t the location that I care about, but the people I’ve met and befriended.  So, here is my favorite ‘city’:

Everyone I know and love is within reach with a sense of community.  Those that seek to tear me down are far away instead of in my face every day.  All I need is within walking distance and I never have to worry about eating out because I have more than a slew of burger joints in reach.  A pond outside my home for me to rest by while wild animals wander within sight, making me feel like I’m not in the middle of a city.  Most importantly, there is peace and quiet.  No blasting horns, cursing drivers, and an aura of noise that has no source and no end.  I guess that’s what I want the most right now.  I just want peace.

That’s really it.  Not sure what this means though.  I simply don’t have a physical preference as long as the atmosphere is calm and relaxing.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
