Erie Street

Whenever I see Erie Street, over by the University of Minnesota campus, I smile. My first year as a grad student at the U, I’d walk by Erie Street and get incredibly homesick for Erie, PA and all of my Penn State buddies. I still miss that time and place, but now the sign just makes me happy, much like seeing Pennsylvania Avenue in St. Louis Park does. They’re a reminder of the places I’ve called home.
