XCII: Rooted

"There is never a seaman wants to settle in the city," one of them said. " What they want is a little chicken farm of their own."  Dorothy Day, The Long Loneliness

The quote reminds me of my grandfather, a Seabee, who often expressed his desire for a little place in the country. I never heard her say it, but my grandmother was said to often reply that she was going to be dead a long time, and didn't see why she should start now...
