Back in this remarkable place with newfound appreciation for clean air, less noise and a small town culture... Don't get me wrong, I love cities and the vibes of places like San Francisco. I did grow up in Toronto after all. Big cities give you a look at the intensity and vulgarity of human progress; the design and mastery of space. Cities are even good for the environment if you consider per capita human impact. But I prefer the remote life. Away from the crowds and concrete, more connected to the earth. A place where I can see the stars, or go on a walk without seeing anyone for hours. My mind and body thrive in this environment.
