  • Saint Louis isn't always regarded as a magical place. I think we were just named the top sinful city by a real estate website, in fact. Oh well, let them think what they must. Saint Louis will always be mine, and I can see it anyway I please.


    My Saint Louis revolves around culture, energy, enthusiasm, strength, understanding, individuality, pride, determination, and magic. Walk into the realm of Forest Park, listen to the hum of trains passing by in Webster Groves, see the schoolchildren frolic on the playground at (what used to be) Truman Elementary, feel the vibrance of a smooth saxophone on Delmar, hear the roar of Cardinal Nation overpowering the burst of fireworks at a World Series game, indulge in a Jamaican pork Tenderloin over a Blues game at Weber's, wade at Whitecliff among adorable new families, chase a friend down Katy Trail to a quaint winery, stand under the unmistakeable Arch which accepts its inattention so well, marvel at the high school soccer players gracefully tapping and striking and carrying the ball down luscious green lawns, blend in with the nightly Ted Drewes' crowd as you wait for that incomparable pistachio concrete, sing along with the summer stars at the Muny in Forest Park..

    I can't begin to list the endless possibilities this city has to offer. It may not be the city that never sleeps, and it may or may not be "Sin City". But it is my city, and when you live here I guarantee you will feel the same way.
