Vantage Point

Where I sit there is an incredible view. You can see the majority of the entire city and surrounding suburbs. It has just snowed and there are drifts of snow five feet high in some places. The wind chill is around -30 degrees. The sky is crystal clear blue. The free way is open. There are planes taking off. People are at work. This would seem to be the most inhospitable place in the world and yet here we are. For some reason the resiliency and the ability to adapt always amaze me and every once in a while carry me through the days when I think why the fuck am I living here.
