Used to be, wherever you walked in Boulder, the mountains woke you up. Now such views are few.

I like most of the development, but wish we guarded those views better. The Flatirons, after all, are our Empire State Building, and in NYC they guard any changes to their skyline.

The Dalai Lama said something like “views remind us that life is but a dream, waking us out of our small-minded seriousness and neurosis”—i.e., views are practical and valuable things—the source of much of what’s special here.
