A visit to New England | Off Kilter

Let me start by saying that my wife and I immediately felt comfortable when we moved out here from New England.
Reason? We find that Northwesterners share a common trait with people from New England. That is, people in both places tend to keep to themselves. Those of you who are natives of the Pacific Northwest may not agree with this, but it is palpable. Generally, it takes a good friendship to be invited to a person’s home. Meeting in public places in New England (say restaurants, bars, etc.) is quite routine, but in 30 years of living there, I think we were invited, perhaps, to a coup...
