Here is a list of places I’d like to live:
-Vancouver (except for the rain)
-West Cork/Kerry/Clare (see above)
-Portland (see above)
-Toronto (except for the cold)
It’s based on my perception of kindred spirits per head of population, and on my crush on Canada. I haven’t even been to Vancouver or Portland, and have barely grazed Toronto. It’s a shame they have disagreeable climates in common, but probably not a coincidence. We are shaped by adversity.
