Coming Home

I have often thought about the home I grew up in in New York.

My bedroom had blue flower wallpaper and forest green carpet.

There was a magnolia tree out front we climbed, a small blackberry bush that we picked from in the summer, and a huge rock nestled next to a short juniper bush.

There was a rock that I would pretend was a baby hidden in the Juniper bush. I would find it every spring and play with it outside until the snow fell. Then find it again in the spring.

I would be crushed to go back and see bare floors, white walls and a misplaced rock baby.

Coming Home shows mages of residences from people's childhoods.

It is an interesting photojournalistic story.

Thank you for this. The baby under the bush reminded me of my own childhood imaginings x
