Big City

Things are cooking in this town. My friend made this observation as we experienced this inconvenience of bustle.

We just got blocked in a parking spot on Cherokee Street. We parked in the small lot at Vellasano, the old custard stand. I was picking up some fresh handmade ice cream that I am having made for the Royale.

I pull in and we come out just a few minutes later and we got blocked in. The parking has gotten tight! And we got blocked in with several other people, none of whom spoke English. Everybody was waiting quite patiently. I think I am the only one that was in pursuit to find this parking scofflaw. It took about ten or fifteen minutes, and another non-English speaker strolled up to this blockading pickup and moved it.

What a wonderful feeling. Of course, most people would bitch about this. We didn't mind it at all, nor did the other people involved. I think it is a great sign of things to come. Little comforting growing pains. I enjoy, even savor these pains.

I think it really is an axiom: the more vibrant/thriving the city is, the more difficult it is to park.
