According to Google Earth, I Never Left Home:


Or at least, i havent yet. Street View hasn't updated since September 2011, so i am there, somewhere. My home is frozen in time and that's alright. They've caught us on a good day. Look at how blue the sky is. I know exactly what that day smelled like, just from how the sun hits the bay. The house on the corner hasn't fallen in on itself. The hurricane never has to hit at all. I hope Google never takes another picture. I want to exist some form of myself who never has to grow up and walk away.
