Pretty Lights

December has shaped up to be a very busy month for me. With 2009 looking to be a not-so-hot year in media (layoffs at Rogers, CTV, Canwest), we are busy cramming as much projects into 2008 so 2009 will look nice to all the shareholders. Anyway, all this is to say that my blog postings will be a bit light for the remainder of this year.

I had a bit of an epiphany while taking the bus this morning about street lamp Christmas lights. It's a pretty good indication that you're in a walkable neighbourhood/town centre if you have Christmas lights on your street lamps. One sure sign that Whalley is transforming into a walkabout town centre is the appearance of pretty lights on the street during the holidays. Who needs fancy density charts and zoning maps when all you need to do is look for the lights?
