As I See It Now was inspired to do the “Where I’m From” meme. It never fails to touch me when I read someones rendition.
a bit of hers:
I am from Christmas at grandparents’ houses and travelers always searching for a better place,
from people near and those very far away.
I am from the quiet ones who are lost in thought and those who spend their lives loving simple things which others never pause to see.
From reading in bed when the rest of the house lay dark
and from stories of family long gone. From people-are-watching-so-you-need-to-behave and folding down my ankle socks just right.
I am from old Baptist churches with hard wooden pews
and services on sweaty summer nights with people waving fans labeled
Owl’s Drug Store and Fountain on a stick.
