I Don't Heart Atlanta

Atlanta sucks! Literally. It keeps sucking my friends away and I don't like it one bit. It already sucked one friend right out of these beautiful mountains and now it's working on the second one, my friend Dana. The strength of the suction just got more intense tonight and I'm not ready.

Change always happens quicker than I expect it to. I seem to fool myself into believing I have more control over it than I do and then it sneaks up behind me and takes my breath away. Tonight Dana and I went into a movie in relatively warm, calm weather and came out to a blinding blizzard. The roads, dry when we left, were snow-packed and drifting for the drive up the mountain. By the time we made it home, the windows of my house were all frosted with a fine layer of powdery snow. Now I can't see Dana's house just across the street. But at least tonight I know she's still there. I just won't think about tomorrow.

Can you be sucked and land in Atlanta too? You'd miss those blinding blizzards and beautiful mountains. Snow is an oddity here...and I miss it a lot.

I just got the news that Dana is coming to look for a home. Would love to talk with her and make a connection. Soon you'll have two reasons to come to Georgia.

I'm sorry that Atlanta is sucking your friends away. If it's any consolation, I promise to hang on tight. I have no intention of being sucked away. Does that help at all?
