Homecoming

I love living in suburban Washington DC and especially in Fairfax County. This area has so much to offer. We have good schools, fine employment, wonderful restaurants, shopping, universities, libraries and culture (much of it free) even if we do have to put up with some traffic issues and the scarecity of mass transist and the occasional gut wrentching fear that you should have a better plan to be able to quickly evacuate to someplace else.

Perhaps the absolute best part of where I live is that I also live in a small town. On Homecoming Day this town really shines as we bring out all the kids, dogs, politicians, and activities to march down our “main” street in the big parade. Friends, old and new, seem to mingle from all areas of your life as they are greeting each other and everyone seems so happy. It is what I think “community” is really all about.
