I LOVE living in Iowa. And most days, I really really like living in Des Moines. I occasionally encounter people who don’t share my opinion and can’t understand why. It’s hard to describe, but it’s something you just have to experience and in some extent, experience in solitude. If you give it a try and “get it”, well, good for you. Good for you!
I’m only bringing this all up because I came across some articles written by David Byrne of the Talking Heads. He liked Des Moines so much he wrote three journal entries about it on his website. This guy gets it.
