  • 8 facts about a spot on a hill.

    ___

    1. I found the spot while looking for a good vantage point to take a photograph of downtown Tulsa. Turns out, it's way too far away.

    2. I once sat in the back of my pickup with the girl I was dating and split a twelve-pack of PBR and watched the sunset at my spot. If I drank that much now, I'd end up in the hospital. Also, it ended up being cloudy.

    3. When I found my spot, it was farmland. Now it's the road to the under-construction botanical gardens.

    4. I once drove there in the snow and barely got back out.

    5. I've watched probably more sunsets there than anywhere else my whole life. Not just seeing a sunset, but mindfully watching. Pretending the rest of the world didn't exist.

    6. I drove to my spot and cried the night I decided to move away from Tulsa.

    7. My spot is 234 miles from where I live now. I haven't been there in over a year.

    8. I once visited my spot in the fog. It was like a dream. A dream I didn't want to wake up from.
