Wow! Marie, what a gorgeous remembering of your homeplace! I'm still struggling to put into words my Home piece personal essay. I lived in 5 houses as a kid. 3 of those houses were on the same street. It was a dead end in a non-neighborhood. I think all 3 of those houses will soon be razed. It's very, very strange.

Your descriptions here are so vivid. I really fell in love with this story. Thank you for sharing it with Age of Empathy.
