They stood in the doorway of the bungalow they’d shared for almost three years and hugged. Some friends who were there to see them off snapped a photo, so that’s how he remembered that moment - their silhouettes, backlit and a little timid, leaning into each other for support.

LA It Ain’t
Moving is hard.
You look around and think “This isn’t that much stuff.”
Then you start putting it into boxes and think, “Maybe this is a lot of stuff.”
Once you get it on the truck, you think, “Wow, this all fits into one truck. That’s really not that much stuff.”
And then suddenly you’ve moved from Los Angeles to Charlotte. And you think, “This isn’t that different.”
Or ain’t it?
If you needed any more proof that we’re culture teetering on the edge of being both bereft of dignity AND imagination…well, look no further.
