I love the city in the morning. I can walk for blocks without seeing another person. There's no noise from cars and pedestrians shouting at themselves. Dew covers the Star Crunch wrappers on our lawn. It's beautiful.

You can keep the nightlife. I gave that up even before our baby was born. You'll find me outside at 5 AM, watering the garden, too early for the morning glories to be blooming yet.

When I'm standing back there all alone, watching the sun come up, that's when I'm the most happy to live where I do. It's almost like not being in the city at all.
