Living at home this summer is not an idea I'm very fond of. I like this city. I've fallen in love with it. I love the river, the buildings, the people, and the size: Not too big, none too small. It has a culture, and identity. It has a soul. As any city does. It's the impression it lays in my mind. It's the alive feeling I get walking around downtown. The landscape itself has a personality. It's a personality laid down by the accumulated little intricacies of this cities inhabitants. They impregnate their surroundings with every part of themselves.
