I went to Ikea on Sunday with several friends.  It was time to reset the place for me emotionally — the previous trips had been: 1) the day I was moving into my new apartment after a years-long relationship had ended and I was leaving our house; 2) a happy visit as one of those new couples drifting through the showrooms hand-in-hand occasionally stopping to kiss next to a Kramfors ottoman while dreaming of their future homes together; and 3) killing time one afternoon in Portland the week after our apartment was suddenly just mine.

So this was just a trip with pals, helping a friend upgrade her bedroom to reflect the 30-year-old academic professional she is.  3 hours later, I walked out with a pack of 10 kitchen towels and a gentle sense of wistfulness.
