"Five years ago, my husband and I responded to an empty nest by moving to a farm in Loudoun County. It's been an adjustment. His commute by train can take hours. I enjoy tales of his train society, but I now spend more of my time with dogs, cats, horses and garden than I do with human beings...Like coyotes in Rock Creek Park, or me in my long coat riding a bike across my cornfield, urbanites in what is left of rural Loudoun County may be out of place, but we are here to stay -- just like the million-dollar homes that are sprouting left and right on the old farmlands."
