One response to “Conversations with friends”

  1. Charisma

    Although I’ve never been to Austin, I can get a sense of how it sometimes escapes stereotypical images of “Texan-ness.” And I can definitely relate to liking a place intensely, or wanting to, and at the same time feeling like there’s a crucial piece of the puzzle missing.

    A friend and I have been picking each others’ brains over the last few years about this exact topic of place, of locating (investing in?) the physical site, and then building your “urban family.” What do you think of this concept? I find that I’m too impatient, and that I want an all-inclusive package without the labor.
