I'm looking for a word that would fit the space below:
Even as a(n) [adjective] city-dweller, I recognize the importance of the haystacks.
I have searched to no avail and restructured the sentence in case no such word exists, but I'm still curious and would love to keep it in the structure above.
- "Native" conveys the origination I'm after, but not the continuous perpetuation
- "Perpetual" is too eternal, as is "eternal" (I want to convey "until now")
- "Perennial" doesn't convey origination or, necessarily, continuousness
- "Longtime" has the same problems as "perennial"
