I’m about to sleep in the back of a minivan on a street bordering Laurelhurst Park in Portland, Oregon

The van is filled with all my earthly possessions

I am curled up in an army sleeping bag beneath my mattress, which is partially elevated by some apple boxes filled with books

Outside it is cool and rainy and fall-like and there is a full moon and it is perfectly silent

Ahhhhh!!

Good-night y’all ☆ミ
