Dear readers

This is where I grew up. Or rather in an apartment in the house adjacent to this. This was our view. I lived here from age 7-14. It was a new suburb, the trees were so tiny, newly planted, fragile.

It was a sterile, construed, weird world. Only the people had some experience and life. I liked my friends. The houses, not so much. This picture is from a realtor trying to sell an apartment. We've had snow for so long I almost didn't react at all to the absurdity of this picture. Like anyone would sit down on this balcony in this climate and weather, cosy up with a fleece blanket and enjoy the friendly light from the lantern at the right?

Nice try. I don't miss living there. I only miss parts of my childhood.
