A short essay I wrote is up on Orion Magazine’s website.
“My husband wants land. He digs through websites, hoping to uncover a patch we could afford. I want it too but it hurts to see him look at places someone else will live on, or subdivide. It’s not our time, yet. We plant pennies in our bank account and watch them grow too slowly. In the meantime, we live in a condo in the city….”
I love The Place Where You Live feature; I’m glad they brought it back.
And I do love Portland, Oregon—even on days like this one.
