Views on a Vancouver in Decline (by Meg Holden)
An important and fascinating article, especially as I was forced to think deeply about this while speaking with Dan.
I am definitely at the stage of voice. But I am actually frustrated with my voice vs. Vancouver, since I don't know which version I should be loyal to.
Rachael and I's recent trip to Toronto -- where Rachael was thinking 'exit' -- was interesting to be reminded that the grass is not greener.
I still have feelings of wanting to leave at times -- but those are feelings tied to wanting to exit commercial, capital life all together. The fake idyll of a Gulf Island and subsistence farming. Or at least, subsistence remote tech consulting.
