Been Back a Year

Has it really been a year?

There are days when Vermont seems like a dream, and then I think of the friends I made.

I mourn it less now, just on long weekends, when we aren’t with my family.

And sometimes when I just want to be some place else and I realize that Kansas City is 9 hours east and Salt Lake is 8 hours west. Those moments I miss the proximity of New England and New York.

But here is where I belong.
