My neighborhood is changing. Sugarhouse has always been this old, charming bit of town- far enough from the city to feel intimate, but close enough to feel connected. I've always loved it for that reason.
A big shopping center is being built, which I'm sure will bring a lot of money and opportunity to my part of town, but it's hard not to feel nostalgic about the change.
Change is completely inevitable. I find myself battling against it- sometimes without even realizing it. The most shocking can be when you suddenly look around and realize that the change has already happened, and you're now in a different present than you had previously thought. It's a double-edged sword. Like anything, it becomes whatever you make of it.
The most I can hope for is that I can do what makes me happy. And I am happy. Very happy.
