What it means:
It means staying in the northern Rhode Island or southern Massachusetts area. It means having easy access to Providence or Boston within an hour’s drive. I also mean having access to the beach within an hour and the mountains within three hours.
Why this is important to me:
It’s important to me because I value the beauty of nature. I also like the abundance of cultural experiences that Boston and/or Providence. The cities offer sporting events, theater, museums, restaurants that suburban and rural areas cannot. Ideal living area would be the suburbs.
Position would only have to allow me the time to enjoy Boston, Providence or nature on my days off.
How would I feel if this were missing?
I would feel trapped. I need an easily accessible change of scenery in order to recharge my energy and transition away from my work responsibilities.
