Opposing Forces

Sarah is hosting the Saturday Mix today. 

“This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose. Our words this week are: – native and foreign      – mountain and valley “

I am not native to California, nor am I foreign. I arrived with my family at the ripe old age of one. I consider myself a CA girl through and through even if the government does not.
I have lived in the valley for all of my years. Beautiful mountains surround me. It is glorious to visit the mountains, but the winding roads frighten me more now.
The suburbs in the valley are growing too fast for my liking. Too many people and too much congestion. It is time to look at a smaller city closer to the beach. Then I will be further from the valleys and the mountains.
