Palo Alto isn’t a city. It’s a suburb that won the lottery.
Sacramento is the most self-deprecating state capital in the country. Everyone I’ve ever met from Sacramento has been super cool, and yet no one seems proud to be from there.
What about San Diego?

One of my favorite photos currently at the #Getty by #hiroshihamaya- ‘Children Singing in a Snow Cave’- Niigata Prefecture, 1956. Hamaya is quoted about the photo, he says, “The village Toka-machi is famous for snow. On the night of the Lunar New Year, snow caves are made all over town. Children light candles, bring braziers, and have dinner inside. Adults are invited to be their guests. They sing bird-chasing songs to the beat of clappers. It’s the children’s kingdom all through the towns and villages.” …Is there anything more lovely than that?
Ah yes, the imagery of magical, glowing bubbles in the snow-covered Japanese landscape. Lovely.
