“In a whisper he began begging for—and, as the sun set, received—the concession people always beg for: a little more time.”
Zadie Smith, On Beauty
back in Oregon for one more week before the big move. I had a lot of feelings flying into Portland : excited it wasn't over yet, sad seeing all that I'll be saying good bye to. But mostly I felt relieved to know that it was still here while I was gone. Whether I'm away for a week or a year, the city still stands and there are smiling faces out in the airport parking lot, waiting to take me home.
