It is not a poetic metaphor, I am literally surviving off the kindness and generosity of others right now. I am crashing at friend #2’s place and will be crashing with friend #3 before the weekend is over. I’m going to be a gypsy for a few more days while I get my things in order, but before the end of the weekend I will be in Minneapolis. It’s exciting and terrifying and completely overwhelming. I don’t even know how to begin to thank people for all the kindness and generosity I have experienced. Thank you all so much, friends both near and far.
