in the midwest, it's basically all the same except for brand names and geologic features
maybe it's the 600-mile road trip i just finished or the movie i went to alone or the book i purchased and read cover-to-cover as soon as i came home. maybe it's the email i got from crabtree or the old style beer i found in the refrigerator. maybe it was the random drive across the train tracks and through the spanish section of town or the classes i skipped to take it.
i really miss kansas today. and the people i met there. the opportunities i missed.
