chez moi

i am visiting my town of origin for a few days. i love it in the summer. it is so green and so full of life that i was quite taken aback when i first saw it- but i love being here for the time being. its almost funny how it never changes. but im glad it never does- it gives me a fixed, static point in the middle of everything.

theres the pharmacy, and the pizza parlor. theres the hotel that hasnt enjoyed tenants since god knows when. theres the spa- the lonely spigot spouting mineral water and the huge tunnel which leads the kayederossas through town.

in retrospect, i wouldn't have traded the politics of small-town social circles and the almost binding town limits which were never big enough. i now find charm in ballston spa's complete lack of any charm.
