For tonight I am playing along with City Crafter Challenge Blog with the theme 'City Scene'. Naturally I had to play along as I love the urban landscape.

City Crafter Challenge Blog: Week 315- City Scene
My husband and I love to travel to cities. In fact, our first date was five days in NYC. We each had sixty-two dollars to our name so, of course, we had to walk everywhere as we had no fare for public transportation. What a gift to be broke; walking allowed us to see the city for what it was: spaces, neighborhoods, parks, little 'mom-and-pop' shops. Each space seemed to blend into the other as if my magic.
Back in college I was assigned a book by my Urban History professor. The book was titled The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs. Did I read it, no. It wasn't until years later, staring blankly at my bookshelf, that I decided to pick it up. What a fascinating and dense read. I ate up every word and would forever look at cities differently. Also while reading, I was profusely thanking my past self for not reselling this amazing classic. Yay me!
It is late and must get some zzzz's. Tomorrow I will looking for a piano for my son. Never in a million years did I think we would have piano, well here we are! Thank you for joining me once again.. Until next time take care.
All the best,
