"I dream of closer spaces and more considered amenities; a place where my margins are not so razor thin that a forgotten lunch wrecks the balance of my day. It's a fantasy of community, where everything I need to power my life as a wife and mother and working professional is within walking distance of my house. A place that changes my proportions of time and space, that shortens the distances between piano lessons and playmates...New Urbanism reminds me of something old and familiar, but perhaps what I long for most is something that simply no longer exists in my life."
