Stress Management Of Horse Farms And Public Housing

I was driving to the Stop and Shop in Bristol, Connecticut, so of course I was driving on Jerome Avenue. It's one of those streets you travel on at least two or three times a day.

Interesting street, that Jerome Avenue. There are a bunch of nice old houses, including one salt box from the 1700's. The original house of William Jerome, or so the sign says.

There's also a low income public housing project, close to Route 6. You'll often see shopping carts in front of it, despite the signs in the supermarket parking lot asking you not to take them.

And two houses down from the public housing complex, tucked away a bit off the street is a small, very well kept house with lots of acreage in the back. There's a fenced in horse pasture with two horses.

Not what you expect to see almost next to public housing a small New England city, just off the main drag.

But there it is!

Things grow up around us...sometimes not in the way we intend.

Circumstances change and events fall outside our locus of control.

Sure did for the person who first put down their roots on Jerome Ave. near Stop and Shop.
