I've been doing some "research" of cities on GoogleMaps. I'm zooming in on as many cities, large and small, that I can think of. I drop the little guy down into the streets in the heart of each city. He does seem to panic and flail as I toss him onto the main streets of each city. Usually he arrives facing the gaping maw of a parking garage. I'm going to attempt to post some "photos" of each city if I can figure how to do that from GoogleMaps. There's much to be said about American cities and what has happened to them. I just might write about that when I've got more energy.
While I'm vastly disappointed in most American cities, there are a handful that I find quite interesting and seem to work quite well (from what I can tell on GoogleMaps). I'm going to spend a little time now exploring them (also known as wasting time).
I've read so many blogs lately that include quotes. I'd like to throw in one of my own. I'm sure its been said before, so, if anyone knows who has said it before, please let me know.
It is difficult to bloom when one is planted in shallow soil.
Our environments should nurture us not subdue us.
