Sunday Serenity: Small Town Treasure

Recently I was in the town of Winnetka, Illinois.  It’s just outside of Chicago; and yet, I felt as if I was a million miles away from the big city.

I had never been to Winnetka before, and immediately it reminded me of many small towns in Canada.  It had such a different vibe to it than Chicago’s energy.  It’s almost as if I hadn’t realized how much I was needing a calmer perspective.  I love Chicago; it’s definitely one of the most incredible cities on the planet.

And yet, having the opportunity to spend a bit of time away from the hustle and bustle made me appreciate the slower pace a small town can offer.

I took this picture of the train tracks while I was waiting for my train back to Chicago.  I think it is a great symbol (and literal) example of balance; joining the serene with the quick moving.

What about you, do you have a preference between small towns and large cities?
