Vermont Roads : 1

In Uncategorized on December 12, 2009 at 11:20 pm

It’s been 13 years since I lived in Vermont. Thirteen years. Now it feels like a long time. My parents’ house will always be home, but my childhood in Vermont has faded from memory. I walk through Middlebury and recognize no one. Nobody waves or says hello. The stores have changed hands, signs have been replaced. An old dirt road is now paved. My parents’ friends have gone gray; when they smile, their faces furrow.

But this is the strangest part: When I venture through Cornwall, I don’t know where I’m going. It’s so easy to get lost on the country roads; one wrong turn, and I could go for miles to reach a correcting intersection.
