i got the news on friday and i've been catching giant sighs in my lungs ever since. my namesake, and someone who i've grown very close to over the past few years, is moving north.

i'm learning the nuance of adult friendships. the intensity of my connection to another at a given moment is a bit of a moving target based on a variety of factors. however, nothing highlights closeness like the threat of inaccessibility and by the time thanksgiving rolls around there will be seven hours between us rather than half an hour.

i'm sitting on a mixture of joy and sadness. it's extremely hard to write about it.
