The place you live is reflected in the structures of your mind. It's a space, it's a character, and it's a large vessel home to a lot of emotions and memories all linked through locality. You aren't defined by the place you're in, but you are shaped by it. Contributing to create better environments is also work to create better minds. In a large city, every aspect of living has been considered, tweaked, improved, and refined by so many people that it's hard to feel like any one person has any control over anything in the city. Instead, your neighbors, your paths, your buildings, and your weather all come together to be your city.
