They paved paradise …

… and put up a parking lot

There has been a building boom in the far west Houston area. They must be building for the next boom because oil patch layoffs are at an all time high. All manner of woodlands, grasslands, and former rice fields are being paved over to build subdivisions, apartments, office complexes, and shopping complexes. I am not a tree hugger and am more aware than most that the only constant in the universe is change.

I just passed another area of new construction and this tune started playing in my head. At no time in the past 45 years has it been more true than today.

  1. They’re supposed to be making a huge outlet mall near me. Right now it’s just prairie land, no construction. They did erect a huge sign, though. Jamie and Mom wonder all the time if the funding has fallen through.
