st. louis

Posted to WritersAndGenres

i'm from st. louis, but i'm at college in chicago now. i find st. louis to be both depressing and inspiring at once. depressing because of the white flight, deserted city buildings with broken windows, the suburbs that just keep growing while the heart of the city is abandoned...inspiring because of the arch that dominates the skyline, the people who ask you what high school you went to, and its place as a passage from east to west.
