before and after

came to this city over five years ago exhausted... newly 23 and in a state, but weren't we all. untied myself from university, from love, from safety, from sadness and fear. months became years and time and experience evened me out: it's a good city full of places to hide and places to be seen, it's a good city full of friends, music, and opportunity. i wanted to leave as soon as i arrived but have since learned to love the time spent here and become a better person in learning to balance that. now it's time to move my matured and quieter self to the country where i belong... you know - knitting, baking, gardening.
