Memories of Maryland
I lived in Maryland from 1980 till 1984, and most of the people I met there have departed from my memory as distinct names and faces. Yet, they stay with me, collectively, as a tone, both fulsome and sequacious. That’s an unfair thing to say about Maryland people but it’s the truth about how they conveyed themselves to me. It was a place mildly -- and sometimes pleasantly -- degenerate, a place it was good to experience but not one a person would want to find himself in permanently. But, then, where is the place one wishes to be in forever?
