It’s a far cry from the childhood she had in Colorado, but she says it’s worth it.
“You get all this city culture. We walk to go see Cate Blanchett in A Streetcar Named Desire, and we walk to go to this retrospective on Cary Grant, and it was so cool. But when [you see] the schools have asphalt playgrounds, you’re like, ‘Oh, right. That’s how the city kids do it.’”
Asphalt as a playground is okay, because they still have their imaginations, right? Plus no grass stains on their clothes.
Actually, I think it’s just a little sad when there isn’t any grass. All my playgrounds had grass growing up and I loved it. Living in a small town in Washington means that my kids will have grass as well.
Would you make the same trade-offs Keri did? Culture you can walk to or the freedom a small town gives you?
