"In grandiose moments, high on fresh air and freedom on the hill, I study my personal geology. My body is a continent. Forces are at work in the night. A bruxist, I grind my teeth in my sleep, like tectonic plates. When I blink the sun flickers, my breath pushes the clouds across the sky and the waves roll into the shore in time with my beating heart."

"And it was always the stories that needed the telling that gave us the rope we could cross any river with. They balanced us high above any crevasse. They made us be natural acrobats. They made us be brave. They met us well. They changed us. It was in their nature to."

"Most of the meaningful moments of my life have taken place here, since I moved here for good, on the cusp of adulthood. Bliss has unravelled, joy coalesced out of nothing; my life has pulsed in its streets alongside so many others. Key spots on my emotional map of the city glow hot for a time, and then the heat and light subside."
