These days, life has been a reassuring march towards “normal”. Remote work recently transitioned to hybrid and it has been great reconnecting with colleagues. To celebrate, we had lunch at Louie Louie in University City which was followed by a quick browse around the store Hello World in its new location right next door to the restaurant on the corner of 38th and Walnut.
I continue to take my long walks along the leafy neighborhoods of Center City. It’s heartening to see visitors in and around Independence Hall. Philly favorites like the Reading Terminal Market and Di Bruno Brothers are bustling with shoppers. Dillworth Park in City Hall is setting up for the Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market. Similarly, across the way at Love Park, preparations are underway for the annual Christmas Village. Autumn colors continue to serve as backdrop to city life.
