It’s strange, but all I can think of is this cheesy greeting card I got when I was about 12, for helping the man next door shovel his driveway all winter. It said something like, “There are 2 little words/that are so sweet to hear/and these 2 little words/are meant for you, my dear/although they may be short/and very quick to speak/I just want to say thank you/you’ve made my day complete.” I know, I know, stop freakin’ gagging and let me explain! Anywhere was such a pleasure to read. The writing is beautiful, the stories of the road trip are captivating and it gives such a unique perspective on gender-issues that I was sorry when the trip was over. The text is so well edited it makes the descriptions clearer than the view from the window of a newly rained-on hippie van. So I guess I just wanted to say thank you to the writer of Anywhere, for the enjoyable time I spent reading your zine. Sorry for making you read the poem, I guess I didn’t have to rhyme after all.
