“Suburbs, townships, villages…all converge, coalesce into Houston. Houstonians don’t ask one another if they are from Houston. Growing up, we’d meet up when downtown became deserted after 5PM. We came from all parts escaping our satellites. These buildings and the outlining area are so stark. It was a wonderful feeling of being transported to someplace else.”

“Where else can you walk by a biker store, pass a too-chic salon, stop at the hybrid Chinese burger joint with a barrel on top, all before making your way to an off-the-beaten path coffee shop to sit in the corner and read a book? And then spend an hour in traffic on your way home, satisfied with your day?”
