I just HAD to do it …

This is a video blog, rekindling my memories of the old neighborhood. And my schools, of course. It was a nostalgic visit, one I needed to do since I write so often about it. I hope my long time neighborhood friends can so identify. As I thought about and finally did the video, the following words came to mind: connectedness, comfort, social boundaries, physical boundaries, sense of identity, continuity, challenge, safety, security, mothers, fathers, friendsWatch the video and add some words.

It is about twelve minutes long. Oh, and yes, when I pick up that ball on the baseball field, I realize it was a softball, not a baseball. But the prop worked; just another connection.

Perhaps it may incite you to write your story, return to YOUR neighborhood and realize the emotion.
