It is so strange returning to places of our youth after decades have passed. You really hit on something about how those places move on without us. We may feel a strong connection still, but the place itself and the people there now are having their own experience. Our memories don't matter to them.

That was a great post Alex. I read it earlier this week a day after I returned to my hometown (Poughkeepsie) for a funeral. It was familiar, but different enough to make it feel like I don't have a place there anymore. Time marches on and I am making my own life and memories in a different place now and feel an ownership and belonging in this new community.
