Just before nightfall I decided to take a walk outside. The sky was low, enveloping any object in its reach. It formed a dull, purplish haze - like nothing I’d seen before. The streets were empty. Not a single soul was out. It was oddly peaceful - imagining I was the only one left.
"When we were dating/first married, Daniel and I would drive from Seattle up to North Van skate park, in Vancouver, BC. It was the only public skate park around in those days, and we drove three hours to get there. (We’d also drive down to Burnside in Portland, OR, sometimes—-also a three hour drive.)
I’m pregnant with Nathaniel in this picture. Nathaniel is 19 years old now.”
