The First Day

The temperature dropped on Monday.

At midnight on Tues. Jan 5, 2016, Krish and I moved the last of my possessions out of the Pittsburgh Art House. It was 12 degrees F.

By 1 a.m., I knew my period started.

We began the morning, mostly, by listening to Jesse boisterously scream at us to get out of his house.

I say mostly because waking up warm and tangled up in Krish started the day beautifully. We wrapped each other up in a tight ball and it was divine.

Till the yelling started.

So we bolted without a shower or anytime to clean up and hit the local Dormont daylight diner: The Dor-Stop.

And so began The TransContinental Tour.
