Corn is good. Straight roads are awesome. Fresh air and empty space, a lack of people, beautiful!

Space to breathe, space to think, room to move. Time feels like it’s on your side, in Iowa.

Don’t besmirch the girl with the Cross around her neck. She has faith – the here and now, the future to come – she is a beautiful person, her thoughts and words are ardent. Why, she reminds me of the girl I left behind in Yelets. … Behind? Cliché and pejorative and nonsense. In reality, she left me behind (I could never keep pace with her beyond university – how she has blossomed).

Cold feet, gloriously refreshing, until they start to hurt.
