WATERgate

These were pictures of some water sculptures that I took at the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C.The waterfalls remind me more of the landscaping around Floridian high-rises or the water flumes at Walt Disney parks than of what you normally see around town, here.I liked these aesthetically and think we generally need more integration of nature and art into our urban (and often sterile) environment.

A little more green, a little more clean, and a lot little less crime and congestion–and don’t forget a decent climate–those were some of the things that I look for in attractive places to live and to work.

While no place is perfect, having grown up on the upper west side in Manhattan and then Riverdale (in the Bronx) and now in the D.C. area, let’s just say that there are differences all around us. 😉

Then again, as my father always taught me, you can live anywhere–if you have your health, family, and a good job.
He’s right, a place is just a place–and it’s the people and love between them that makes it great.

So water sculptures aside, give me a real home, and that’s the best place in the world that I want to be.
