A few days ago I was getting a manicure and the young woman sitting beside me said she was in town for a while and wondered what she should "see." I had no idea what to tell her. Every time someone asks me a question like that, I realize how little I know about my city. I told her I hoped she got to see a rain storm. She hoped so too. The one thing that had amazed her on her drive from Manhattan (NY) was in Ohio "where the sky met the grass. Just blue and green -- and nothing in between." The joy in her face made me realize how much we take landscape and space for granted here in the midwest.
I should have told her about our sunsets.
