January 8, 2011 – Urbanity.

A world I'll probably never see.

After living 20+ years of the West Coast, and now after just over one in Dallas — I’ve come to realize that I’ll always be a city person.

Growing up in a small town (<2000 people) had its advantages, but I require the culture, options, and sheer energy of bigger cities.

My favorite vacations have been spent amidst the hustle and bustle of city life (Havana, Paris, Tokyo, London) although I’ve also sampled the laid back style of the “other” kind of trip (Aruba, small towns in Spain, Africa and its safaris.)

The one negative you always have in cities is their underbelly. As I RID this book today, I think that maybe, just maybe…the underbellies are needed. They’re part of what keeps a city on edge, and gives it the vibrancy and energy you see elsewhere within it.

Maybe I’ll sample a bit of Big D’s underbelly next week to find out.
