happiness is a hoosier from home

July 11, 2008

This year I came out to myself as an expat, meaning I don’t think I’ll ever be an Oregonian, but always a Hoosier expatriate living some where else; in this case it’s the great north west. And as an expat I feel very heartened and at home to have spent yesterday evening in the company of a number of Hoosier friends.  One thing I noticed last night is that there was an unspoken cultural touchstone and one that I haven’t always felt or projected myself with the Hoosiers I know who live out here.  So here’s to my homeland and to the folks who are bringing it a little closer to me for a few days.  I’m happy to have you here.
