31 Years Ago

July 27, 1979: I moved to New York City from my humble birthplace of Cleveland, Ohio.

I go back to northern Ohio regularly, and still know my way around. In some ways I feel like I left a few weeks ago; in other ways, like I never lived there at all.

Between apartments in Manhattan and Brooklyn I lived in New York for just shy of ten years. I’ve been in the same house in suburban New Jersey for twenty one years, give or take a few months as long as I lived in Ohio.

So where am I from, anyway?
