My Lovely Home

Posted on Sat, Oct 5, 2013 at 8:23 AM

I will miss the rocks and loud people at Boulder Beach. I will miss the
fries and coffee at the Satellite. The nights of karaoke, dancing, and drag
queens will never be forgotten. Plaza rats, you made life interesting on my
errand days (and I''m sorry I didn't have a spare cig for you). Hillyard,
never a dull moment. Wonderful accepting diverse people of Spokane, I will
miss you too. I will miss the small/big city life I had with you. I'll miss
not having to have an excuse to go downtown, because there was always
something beautiful to see. Talented musicians playing for a buck outside
of Olive Garden. Always someone you know coming around a corner and that
awkward reunion with them. I'll miss the artsy coffee drinking attitude I
sense so often. I'll even miss the drivers, ha ha. I built a life here and
it was truly an adventure. Time for me to move on for good, but I will be
back to visit. I hope others will take a look at the good in this city and
feel grateful like I do. Thanks for the 13 years, Spokane. Yours, J
