It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday. The prompt for today is “old/new” which was sort of neat as I was walking to my favorite coffee shop Saturday morning to work. Oh and have a pumpkin spice treat. Full disclosure here.
This part of the city has a lot of “new” deveopment happening. I mean apartment buildings going up across the street from each other. I often wonder where the people are coming from. In amongst this new construction is a neighbourhood of older homes. Colorful wooden two stories homes. Ones that you can see families being raised in with large backyards, Where you knew your neighbours and looked out for each other.
The old homes have character in that each one is different from the color, entrance, height, windows and front door. I feel the city is losing its uniqueness when it loses these homes and neighbourhoods for steele and glass. I don’t want to live in a steele and glass city. I want my color.
You can always start now!
