Off To Work I Go

It's off to work I go.

Seems like it must have been in the '70s that businesses left downtown Dallas and relocated to "office parks" in suburban areas. It might have meant people who lived nearby when they got a job didn't have to drive so far, but it probably meant as much or more driving for others who changed jobs. It probably means parking costs less (though parking is sometimes in very short supply), and leasing space is considerably cheaper for businesses. It certainly lacks elegance.

They do usually have some bit of landscaping, and now and then (though not in the area pictured) even a fountain. My guess is that great numbers of folks in the Dallas area (now the 4th largest metro area in the US) go to work in such places. One of those folks is me.
