Someone asked me tonight if I wanted to go back to Europe after I graduated.
I had just met the guy, and he asked one of the most poignant questions I have heard in a while.
I know I will be here for at least another year. But what about after that? Will I stay in the states? The economy is circling the drain. UC's are facing huge budget cuts that will affect the way grad programs are funded. I won't have health care again. Why stay here?
I love the poetry scene. I love many of the people I have met here. But what a question! I haven't thought about that in years. Odd.
I like this poem very much. Someone named Jenna sent it to me because something I said about R&J reminded her of it. I like it.
