Where you live right now

When I lived in San Francisco, I met a woman who had just come for a two week visit.
She was from New York and wanted to check out S.F. I never saw anyone go to town on learning all she could about a place in just two week. It was like a job. She worked at it and the result was she knew more about it than me in two weeks than I knew in Ten years.
There are two ways to live somewhere. One way is to just make yourself comfortable and do what is easy and the other is to get involved with people who live there and find out what you can do to be a part of what is going on.
I would say 90 percent of people just do their own life and that is that.
That is why 10 percent of the people control everything.
Everyone else lets them.
anyplace can be amazingly interesting if you leave your own life and connect the dots. Even little tiny places that seem of offer no attraction can become mind blowing wonders if you know a bunch of people.
Take Soap Lake for example. There is not too much going on in the way of a first glance. But if you know the people who live there a lot is going on. A lot that you can take part in.
A place is not great because of museums and stores and big business. New York can be a cold lonely place in the midst of that.
A place is only a collection of Precious People with incredibly interesting stories to tell.
You only have to leave yourself behind and open your mouth and start asking questions. Here is the best question to ask that my husband asks of almost every person he comes in contact with-“What are you doing?” And he really wants to know. And everyone without exception is glad to tell him.
That is why we love love love love everything single place we live!
