Notes and questions on enjoying solitude
Adrien Joly

Man, I joined this site just this morning and your article really hit home! I live in Berkely, Ca. and I now realize that I made a wrong decision to come here. Nothing against the city or people, but there’s just too much of everything: traffic, people bicyclists, activity… Its hard core city here and I guess I wasn’t ready, even though I was born and raised in bustling Los Angeles California. But I think when I moved to Sacramento in 2003 it put the brakes on my upbringing in Los Angeles. Its a lot slower, easier, mellow. Some people interpret that as boring. Well, maybe it is or maybe I’m getting boring as I get older. Lol
