Recently someone asked me how I like living here in coastal Georgia, and the question sparked three quick thoughts:
- I live here! We are not “just visiting”. That’s a new sense of status. We will travel again, probably within the year, but nonetheless, I don’t think of this place as somewhere we are passing through.
This place is teaching me a lot about my country, and as Americans I how we lie about each other. In the North we think the South is a certain way, and vice versa. We are not so monolithic by region, and my experience is still quite small in total.
I don’t even know what I know yet. I had a teacher impress upon me the concept of “slow knowledge“, and how with experiential learning you sometimes only get the point years later.
In any case, I made a list of “21 THINGS I LEARNED IN COASTAL GA“. Enjoy?
