PROMPT: Zoom In

10
go to the quietest and busiest town in the world; you'll find your way here somehow, as people seem to do. find your way to the house that smells like sugar cookies not yet taken out of the oven, the oven's timer barely overcoming the rambunctious sound of footsteps running or jumping or skipping across the rooms. run through the sprinkler in the front yard, savoring the water like ice-cold ambrosia, and feel the fresh-cut grass through your sandals. sit on the porch steps as the cotton candy sun sets and watch the cars pass by, pitying the restlessness of their mechanical engines.

    I really like the juxtaposition of "quietest and busiest" and I would love to see your town.
