My husband and I went to New York last week and toured the Tenement Museum.  If you are ever feeling sorry for yourself, just take a run through that place.  You’ll feel positively prosperous…and grateful.   What we consider basic amenities have really come a long way.  Seriously, take a moment this morning and give your refrigerator a hug.

Urban life is beautifully captured by photographer Jean-Pierre Attal.  His large-scale work is best seen in person to get the full impact.
