This is my last night in Indianapolis. The last 3.5 weeks have been some of the happiest and most transformative weeks of my grown-up life. In addition to all of the new friends that I made and the things that I learned, I also really enjoyed being key-free. I’m thinking of this as a metaphor for having no responsibilities to speak of: no cooking, no cleaning, no job stuff, nothing. It’s also a practical situation too, as I haven’t had to carry keys around with me for almost a month. The car that I rented is a keyless Altima – I carry the magic wand and walk right up to it, open the door, and start the car by pressing a button. The hotel room just uses a card key.
Doors just open for me here.
