Realization of the day
I now live in a light green three-bedroom house with a two-car garage on a slightly busier tree-lined street in a nice, urban, residential neighborhood with a grid street plan and flat terrain, within walking distance of picturesque water and a busy commercial district.
I have exchanged Irving Avenue for Broadway, East Isles in Minneapolis for Otis/Broadway in Alameda, Lake of the Isles for San Francisco Bay, and Hennepin Avenue for Park Street.
Congratulations, Zac, you have reproduced your childhood home as accurately as one can in the Bay Area. This is a good thing, I think. That was a very nice house. Funny though, how we come back to what we know, what we find comfortable and familiar.
