The Economists Intelligence Unit once again published its Global Liveability Ranking 2015. Thirty indicators are used to assess 140 cities across five categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Based on this benchmarking system, Melbourne, Australia retains the position as the world’s most liveable city. Perfect rankings for healthcare, infrastructure and education. Irrespective of your four seasons in one day, I concur.

I like this picture. It says, “Here we are.” It manifests the possibility for discovery, connection and growth. Most importantly, it captures such occurrences outside in the sun(shade). It inspires me to write.
This endeavour is a work in progress. It is a reflection of my inner most; my imagined. The potential for great urban spaces and places exist and I am set to discover and recover them. Join me and imagine your own urban however realised.
