I don’t want to remain living in a small town and being forced to drive long distances just to go shopping at a mall of some sort.
But until I get a better job and can afford the rent in the city, I have to keep living in an environment like this. It’s not always easy when I want a specialty product and have to wait on shipping times to order it off the internet. And since we have limited reach for a lot of the shipping companies, often they will bring in trucks half as many days out of the week as a nearby town with a higher population density. It’s frustrating, but this is where I grew up and also where my parents are from. My family has a lot of history here, going as far back as my great grandfather on the paternal side of my family. However, few of us still remain all of these generations later. My siblings are gone, my parents have passed away, and my cousins are all in different states. It’s lonely being surrounded by so many of the geographic features of your past, but to be the only person from that former world still around. There are people here, sure, but I am the only one remaining from that distant world that I call my past. It’s a rare sign when we see a new business like the new CBD store that just opened on the edge of town. They carry hemp products like tinctures, CBD oil, topicals for the skin, and joints filled with hemp flower buds ground to a fine powder. I get all of my CBD products from this new CBD store.
