I don't know where I want to to live when I actually have to make that decision, but it's going to be someplace with rain. And seasons. San Francisco gets rain, but not often enough for when you're in the mood for a good drizzle, or even something heavier. I like the skylight in my car more because I like the sound and sight of rain on glass above my head, than for the sun and sky when it's bright and warm. Whatever structure I live in, in this place as yet to be determined, will need a room with lots of glass in the roof and walls, from which one can enjoy a good afternoon drizzle from the comfort of indoors.
oi, it's past 11p already. gotta get to bed, early(!) meeting tomorrow and 10:30a. "work is so cruel."
