May Day / Jane Jacobs.

Today’s May Day, International Workers’ Day.
I spent the day in Halifax, participating in a ‘Jane’s Walk’ – a celebration of cities, this city in particular. The walk takes it’s name from the legendary Jane Jacobs – a rad, inspiring woman. In the 1960s she wrote about urban communities, planning and design in ways that are still resonant today.

And so we walked. And talked. And it was good.
