From shamanism to science, from plants to placebos,  we humans look beyond our bodies to cure illness, ease psychic pain, or alter reality.  And as we age, we turn more frequently to pharmacies and prescriptions.

City vs Suburbs (4 Stories)

Loading Share Buttons...

Do you love the city?  Are you energized by the hustle and the bustle,  the rush of the people on the sidewalks,  and the noise of the traffic in the streets and in the shops and restaurants?  Do you like the anonymity of the urban life?

Or do you prefer the relative quietness of life in the suburbs or in small towns with only a screen door between you and your neighbors?

Or does an even more rural lifestyle attract you?
