In the Midwest I did a lot of driving. As a passenger, I mean. Zac drove me all around Fargo, Moorhead and down to Milbank and Sioux Falls. The land was flat and dry and freezing. Time outside was limited because it was -30˚C. We spent most of the time eating and watching movies. I had French toast at Perkins and we saw Fantastic Mr. Fox twice.

In Connecticut it was too hot to do much, the humidity was intense. We took a boat tour of the Thimble Islands. Lioni explained to us that there is one rich woman who tries to buy up every island that goes on the market and then leaves them there empty. You can tell which ones are hers because of her flag flying like the Jolly Roger.
While flying around the US I was reading The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. I found the trip hard going because of the heat, the screaming children in Connecticut, the overwhelming-ness of New York, the wedding across the border in Ontario and on top of that always knowing that when I got home my dog would be gone.
My dog is still gone.

This is you and me. You are trying to explain to me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that it is all relative, that there probably is no such thing as beauty. I am watching you and all I can think to myself is how beautiful you are. You are shorter than me here, rounder too, but you don’t look like anyone else. You look like the rock I fell in love with and sitting here with you at the edge of the world is exactly where I saw myself all those years ago.
