Renew

Interviewed by Mina Parker

Time Away, Time for Change

IMG_0085

Having gone away to an old city with a long history, I’m thinking about renewal. Looking at a building pulled apart from the inside out, with only the facade propped up as they build new guts behind it, I got angry. And sad. Just like our modern world, to keep up the outside (and the historical character) and savage the innards of a space filled with memories, dreams, darkness, and truth.

Everything changes. The lease renewal demands action. The pounded down neighbors around me grin and bear it. The city I loved for years is armoring itself, holding out for larger bids than I can offer right now.

So maybe it’s time to move on. Greener pastures, bluer skies.

California here we come?
