the whole is greater....

They say the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts. lately it seems to me that in some cases, if you focus on the parts, you will see something a lot greater than the whole. This can surely be said for a city.

In the case of Spokane there is a lot of beauty that is missed if you look at the things around it. for example, one of the best things about our city is the turn of the (20th) century architecture. All the brickwork and beautiful Craftsmans. In some neighborhoods which have fallen into disrepair, if you really look at the individual buildings, you can see that even the most worn down neighborhood has its beauty.

Stay tuned this weekend when my boy and I journey into some new old neighborhoods armed with our camera phone and a sense of adventure.....

  1. That is one thing I miss about Spokane, the wonderful architecture. Port Townsend has many gorgeous old homes and buildings, like being on the lower South Hill without the derelicts one often sees there. I will be moving to PT very soon I hope, although not to one of the cool houses, unfortunately.
