Do you have a specific place or region, town or home away from home, that sings to you whenever you visit? Maybe it's a particular beach, a hillside, a secret forest?

The area is full of working farms. And the people I've met here are passionate artisans--glass makers, farmers, cheese makers, fine potters and barn builders.
