Description

Those of us who live in Morris are reminded of the pull of "place" every time we face the juxtaposition of rural and urban--when we move from the Morris rush-minute at Fifth and Atlantic to the 494 rush-hour of the Twin Cities. We are reminded of place every time we are called on to explain to our urban friends what it is people do here. In this sense--in the lack of knowledge of the rural and how rich our lives are here--Morris and its environs take on a kind of exotic, unknown, "other" quality. To those who have never left the city, coming to the country is indeed a "foreign" experience.
