My name is Jenny Hauf and I am a mid-twenty-something living in Boston. While I’ve been spending the majority of my past few years working on hippy-dippy farms and sporting dirt moustaches, sideburns, and weird, Queequeg-style tans, I’ve always been a writer.
My objective in writing this blog is to make pure, unadulterated life more accessible to the urbanite by sharing my own observations, as well as stories and facts that I’ve collected. City living can be oppressive as one walks from one paved surface to the next, but if one knows where to look – between the cracks in those surfaces, or in the vivacity of abandoned lots and train tracks – one sees that the city teems with breathing, growing, tenacious things.
I also aim to share information about gardening and biking – spokes and petals – activities that are practical and rewarding, but also revolutionary and arguably imperative as we enter into the age of the metropolis, where more than eighty percent of Americans live in metropolitan areas.
