Life in Kansas City is very different from the one in Maine. We live hundreds of feet above the ground. In some ways our landscape is static and removed, filled with immovable buildings and shielded by glass. Yet, the sun and weather constantly modifying that. Like a nest, our habitat is at once within and outside this city. Click on the image for a larger view.
Naomi and I have not lived in a city for a very long time. It is a treat to be able to walk out of your home and enjoy restaurants and the arts. A block away from our apartment is the Milwaukee Delicatessen: a wonderful place to relax. Perhaps it is the mid-western attitude or the character of a neighborhood landmark, but the atmosphere is unhurried and friendly. The pizza is great too. Click on the image for a larger view.
