It seems like all the different Presidential candidates go on and on about how much they love whatever state they happen to be visiting that day. I can’t help feeling that it has a certain tone of disingenuousness to it. If they would just say a little something about why they love that area and what makes it unique, it could work for me. Certainly, every area does have its own unique charm. I lived all over this country and many places throughout the world, and I do love them all. Every area’s vegetation is unique, as are its people, architecture, climate, etc. Wherever I’ve lived or visited, I could easily expound upon why I love it, even if only in a few sentences. In fact, I wouldn’t be able to help myself once I got on the subject. I just can’t help feeling it would do a lot more for the candidates’ credibility if they did the same.
Yes, they may be following a routine that has been recommended with out much thought. After all this travel and pressure they may be numb to the experiences that you are mentioning.
So true…I can’t remember ever being in an area for any length of time and not falling in love with it.
I experienced my love for the Bay Area when I recently gave a class in San Francisco. Upon my return home, I rejoice over my love for these mountains that our beloved Mount Soma calls home.
