Kirby Posted October 10, 2017 Share #1 Posted October 10, 2017 There is a big field in my town that I pass every day on my way home from work. It's next to the little shopping mall and the Fireman's Field where kids play soccer. The front of the field is covered by some scraggly trees, but in the back is a beautiful meadow. It's hard to see most of the year because the trees block the view, but in winter, when the trees lose their leaves, you can see the pretty meadow. I like to imagine the deer romping in the meadow and the birds building little homes for their young. In the last month bulldozers have come and ripped up all the little scraggly trees. According to the local paper, they're planning to build some more bland, annoying condos on the beautiful meadow and I feel so sad each time I drive by. I've started driving a different way some times so I don't see it, and I know I'll be near tears when they rip up the beautiful meadow to cram in more housing that will look just like the other housing in town. But the local paper also said they're planning to put one of my favorite Grocery Stores in with the new construction and it will be very nice to have one nearby and not have to drive so far each weekend to get to the nice Grocery Store a few towns over. I suspect once the condos are built and I'm used to seeing them, I'll be glad to have the grocery store there, but I will still miss the beautiful meadow (although in fairness, it's probably filled with ticks). 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
