Indianaversary {1}

IMG_5465I can’t believe we’ve been here for a whole year. It feels both short and long, like many things do. We’ve made real, true, close friends in the accelerated way that living away from family facilitates. We are still rediscovering ourselves within this place, but we are also discovering how our little family works–discovery in layers. Some things about Indiana are becoming familiar, like the way the air settles and sticks in the summer and drapes everything in dew. We are well-acquainted with corn and soybeans and the way they look when pressed together in endless fields. We know our city pretty well, but we don’t yet know our state. We can drive to Indianapolis without directions and we know what freeway to get on to go to Chicago, but we have so much more exploring to do. We have a lot more to learn. It’s been good, Indiana, let’s keep this up.
