This post today is a little closer to home.
In Fall of last year I took a trip home for some client work. While there and in between sessions. I took a trip to where I grew up in my 1st 5 - 6 years of living Fort Worth. These years had a big impact on my life and have stuck with me thru out the years to remind me where I came from. It wasn't the best, nor the easiest but it made me who I am and reminds me that what I have could be all be gone in a minute. Plus, I made some really good memories and friends that I still talk to still to this day.
This 1st image is in the backyard of my grandparents house, which my mom inherited after their passing. The house was bought and built right after WWII. Now, this shed was there in the 1970's when we used to come visit from Georgia. Plus it was where all my toys were kept. This shot was taken in 2016. So a shed to stand this long and still be standing...they don't make them like that any more folks.
This image is one I am proud of, not for the image itself but what it shows. I helped my grandfather build this walkway on the side of the house in the early 80's. Not sure how much longer it will be here. The house was just sold.
Now the next few images are of the apartments that I grew up in after my mom and I moved out of my grandparents house. These apts, hold a lot of good memories for me and like mentioned in the opening paragraph. Shaped my life and gave me some of the street smarts I Have today. Lots of fun was had here with many of the friends I made. No details will be given.
The next couple images are of the school I attended as well as my friends did. Mclean Middle school. Couldn't get any shots of the front due to a marching being held there that day.
So this was a trip down memory lane for me and was a change of pace just to be able to step back in time to remember who I am. I don't live n the past, but you can not forget the past and what shaped you to be who you are now. Don't forget where you camw from!
