Apologies for the long silence. Vancouver summers are busy enough without moving, renovation, doctoral candidacy, and a parade of guests. After concerted marital persuasion and a long search, we have left the modern vision of downtown Vancouver for medium-density living on the other side of Burrard Bridge. It was not without hesitation that we left condo convenience, but we were more than ready to escape the austere temper of Yaletown. Farewell blazers, frowns, and tiny dogs, hello B-Line, Ray-Bans, and leafy streets.
