Pensacola, Florida. It was in this small town that I found many wonderful friends. Wild-ass kids who lacked the Northwest coldness. They were not shy or standoffish. They were drunk and friendly and sweaty from the sun and humidity. They smelled like summer and a mosh pit and a little like those hand rolled Drum cigarettes. Queers and weirdoes and people who really liked music and defined community with their actions: sharing resources and travel contacts and food and skills. Most importantly, they were excited about life.

I was agreeable to all of this. To this commitment to community, an enthusiastic lawless life without boundaries or careers or limits, to the Southeast tour circuit and the camaraderie felt with punks several states away, to the dance parties and the humidity and sunshine.
