Future shock: Portland
One month from manana i am coming home. But my home has been in Madrid for the last 5 years.
Home is the North East. Northern VA? Not anymore. NJ? That was a long time ago. CT? It's been my home almost every summer for the best 5 years. Yes, CT will do for a start.
My long term plan focuses on Portland.
"Portland, Oregon?" people ask.
"I'm moving back home to be close to my family and friends. I'm 8 hours away by plane now. It would be rather idiotic to move back but live 5 hours away by plane. I'd just be changing directions. Portland, Maine."
Lobsters. Kayaking. Nice summers. The beach. Medical marijuana. Shack up with a motorcycle mama and live in sin. Buy a cat and call him Hackett. Teach high school literature and writing. Write another novel. Sounds idyllic, doesn't it?
The Portland File:
Population - 66,000
Distance from Ansonia CT - 243 miles
Flight - 1 hour 25 minutes Portland (PWM) to LaGuardia (LGA).
I will put up with cold and snow to not hate summer anymore. In combination; Jamaica, Northern VA and Madrid have made me hate the heat.
One month. First stop, Connecticut, the Constitution State.
