invisible cities, by calvino, is one of my favorite books.
marco polo describes to kublai khan the cities of his empire. each city is like a web of meanings, fragments of perceptions and fleeting impressions.
i too have very instinctive reactions to different cities. i wonder how i would describe los angeles a la calvino. yesterday i drove to the other side of the city and saw one more of its facets.
and now i'm thinking about it...
one thing i know - it is definetely a woman, LA woman...
