    In my day job, I spend a lot of my time figuring out where those lines go and drawing them on paper. We file all sorts of environmental impact reports on how our new building will affect the neighbourhood. Sadly, it is hard to make everybody happy, though the intention is truly there.
    This is such a beautifully written essay. So happy to read your writing again.

      Thank you for the kind words. It has been too long since I wrote a post. Had to get something out and this was what came. So glad you enjoyed it.

    my appreciation for this piece is two-fold:

    one. the writing is beautiful and i love the shift in tone–from longer, rambly, stream of conscious frustration to separate, composed thoughts as process and change perspective.

    two. my perspective has needed a good shake for a while. i keep looking at things in my life as impediments, hindering my view of what i thought i should be looking at. this post was a reminder to take a closer look and appreciate what’s in front of me without resentment. thank you :]
