I don’t know what I expected from Cleveland, exactly. I guess I thought the downtown would feel empty, deserted; or that buildings would look run-down or tired.

After Thanksgiving, we finished sorting, selling and donating well over half of our furniture, kitchen supplies, books, clothes, and odds and ends. We packed everything else up in our little sedan and mapped out a route […]
