365 Snap Shots of Life Blog Challenge: Day 14

House of Ghosts

This is the house I finished growing up in. 2 summers ago I went back, not sure what I expected to find. I’m not one to take a stroll down memory lane. My husband on the other hand, is one to go back to all the old neighborhoods of his childhood every time he has taken me to his home town. I always found that a bit tedious, so when I did it, I came away with the same detached emotion. Personally, it’s better to reminisce about the past in my mind and forget about going to the actual places.Things change true enough; however there are things that remain intact and when I showed up at this house,  I felt like I did back then, nothing. I meant nothing to the people I lived with in that house, and I still am nothing to them. Hence my lack of emotion for the place.

  1. I think it’s a good idea to go back to places that were apart of our lives. To face the demons and know in your heart you’re over the nightmares,dreams,the demands of our souls.
    Then to be able to walk away from the structure and feel strong in mind and body, you left the negitive and loveless behind and the life you are living is so much more strong and loving. And I am just noisy and want to see what each place looks like!!!!


    1. I have dealt with all the demons of the past and that’s why I am able to appreciate so much what I have now. Going back, to me, is kind of pointless because the past is the past and there’s no point for me in revisiting those places. I live for now with hope for my future. I think your brother is a very nosy fellow and that’s one of the reasons why he’s gone back to those place :)…lol
