I will measure my courage in miles.
Four Corners is one of the least tourist-y tourist traps I’ve ever toured, courtesy of the Colorado Plateau.
I live on a train and once heard my new neighbor explaining to her young, startled daughter that “home moves sometimes, okay?”
I didn’t think much of it at the time, but lately, whenever I feel lost, or unsure, or desolate, at a diner, reading a paper, drinking a tea, I’ll put down my pen, I’ll look up, and I’ll find my voice already trying to reassure me,
"Home moves sometimes, okay?"
