Things are pretty fucking lame these days. Each day you come home and tell me of one more place I enjoy being torn down for shitty condos. Or one more homeless camp full of families just like ours. We keep toeing the line between disaster and success. I want you to know I hate it here now. I want to leave the state I swore I couldn't imagine leaving. It's like a viewing at a wake these days. The spirit is gone and we are just holding onto the lifeless bones so we don't have to say goodbye. It's time to bury Portland and start moving on. I need closure
