Dude, Where's my home?
I thought I liked this heat.
Walking home from the supermarket in this hot, Austin weather, I closed my eyes for a brief moment.
When I opened them, I was no longer walking on the sidewalk leading back to my apartment. I felt the sun, I saw the mountains, I smelled the diesel fuel of the generators that powered our base.
I couldn’t escape it. I knew I wasn’t there..but every sense I had told me I was.
I snapped out of it when the 18-Wheeler drove by, my senses returned to the present and brought me back to Texas.
But there was a moment..
