Beauty In The ‘Burbs

January 7, 2009

My friend Jeremiah recently reminded me of something important.  It’s very easy, he said, to be cynical about the places we come from.  It often takes real effort to view our home environments with appreciation.

This week I’m back in the suburbs of Sacramento, California, where I was raised.  For a variety of environmental, social, and economic reasons, I’m not a fan of suburbs in general.  But as Jem pointed out, no matter how ignominious our origins, they almost always include something of value.  So this morning, while making breakfast and walking the dog, I took my camera along.  Insta- fresh perspective.
