orionI’ve got a new, very short essay that’s appearing online. Orion Magazine runs a series called “The Place Where You Live,” and my piece is about Lexington, Va.

Here’s an excerpt:

On the first night we went to bed in our new house, I flicked off the overhead light in our bedroom and couldn’t see the way to my side of the bed. There was no moon, no glow from the naked bulb of a neighbor’s porch light, no yellow streetlamps to guide me. I held my hands out in front of me and felt my way.
