30 July 2008


Location (and those associated features, like climate) is not nearly as important to one's happiness in a place as the sense of community fostered there. The need for community is so strong, yet living in an area relatively isolated such as the suburbs can cause people to turn to material wealth, mistaking that for happiness. When am I happy? When I'm not feeling like an outsider... I can be a wanderer without feeling lost.

I seek out places where people say hi.
I should say something here about local businesses, but mostly I give them my support because I like familiar faces that have some history in the area.
