I am just another face in the crowd, a country boy living in the big city. “Country boy” is a loosely used term as I did not really grow up in the country. I grew up in a Western Massachusetts town in the Pioneer Valley. My hometown: Northampton.
To most of my city friends, Northampton is “the country” and it isn’t till you travel far enough west on the Mass Pike that you are considered part of Massachusetts.
Therefore, I choose Somerville as my place of residence for now.
