I Earn My Name
I miss Kansas. Last week I dreamt I was back in Lawrence. Maybe it had something to do with explaining to a UWM film instructor from St. Paul that Lawrence was named after an abolitionist stronghold in Massachusetts last Sunday. Then, during my shift at the co-op this past week a guy wearing a KU t-shirt came in. I asked him if he were from that fair state--which is something I do whenever I see someone sporting KU or Jayhawk merch. Turned out he was. Now I'm sitting here now listening to Jolie Holland--and it makes me think of barn dances and other crunchy activities--and I almost feel like crying.
