I want to take you far frm the cynics in this town

I'm Julia. This is my life. My life is characterized by some mix of snark & optimism;my likes range from the delicate to the ironic. I want to be near the ocean. I believe the world is a beautiful place.

This blog is a celebration of nature, of change, of courage, of kindness, of bliss, of life, of the universe.

And there’s something else. On a regular basis, I will be walking around, going about my business, and I’ll see the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge and it’ll suddenly hit me again. My God. I live here. In a city some people dream their whole lives of just seeing once. That’s pretty goddamn magical.
— from this amazing post about “on not being middle class in New York City”, but this quote basically sums up my feelings on living in London, if you substitute “Empire State Building” for “Big Ben” and “the Brooklyn Bridge” for “the Tower Bridge.”
