Notes On A Move

Notes On A Move

1.

The day after I graduated from college, I boarded a plane to Northern Somalia. The move was not anticipated, but rather accepted, as if I simply traded one country for another. I teach geography to children. Pointing to a globe, I say Hello, Im A——-, and Im from Minnesota. America. I trace the ocean with my finger: I was there; now Im here. Minnesota has a lot of lakes. I dont pretend to be more than I am.
