I'm kinda homesick. Recently I catch myself dazing off more frequently and dreaming about the good ol' US of A. I realized just how homesick I was when I read this article, which begins with "a toddler decapitated, a 6-year-old stabbed in his sleep" and all I could do is look at the sidebar map of Camden, NJ and long for the Delaware River and I-95.
And that's not anywhere close to anywhere I once lived. It's just a river bordering a city I really like and a freeway that I once drove on with Tar while listening to Freeway.
I can't even imagine how I'd feel if those unspeakably horrible tragedies happened within a sidebar map of the Rillito River.
