Despite the shootings and the grit, my neighborhood appears to be the next big thing. So much for dreaming of a bigger place just around the corner... Of course I knew this was heaven all along. Yesterday there were so many people walking around the lakes that it resembled a line at a ticket office. Even the runners were outnumbered. Walking is not really my thing (if I could I would ride my bike everywhere, indoors too) so I only reluctantly indulged my friend and joined the crowds. But it turns out walking isn't that bad, and there are things you miss when you live on a bike. First off I am happy to inform you that a small handful of the local swans survived the killing spree, and are now nesting in the most unexpected places. Life goes on, how great is that?
And a couple of local surprises, I love that I am still able to discover things here that I never noticed before.
And hello ever evolving and crazy beautiful People's House wall:
