12686Our Own Day Here: Observations on Community and Place
- Aug 13, 2014Richard Risemberg has just released an e-book of selected essays on community and place. Through the medium of los Angeles, he explores how the way we travel, live, and shop shape our lives and our souls, and reveals the richness of experience he finds in city living.
Among the subjects covered in these sometimes poetic, sometime humorous essays are cars, transit and bicycling, economics and politics, development, and the sense of place and the places that make it joyous.
Many of these were published over the last fourteen years in Sustainable City News, Bicycle Fixation, the Los Angeles Business Journal, Asia Times, Eclectica, and Out Your Backdoor, but others have never before been seen in the wild.
