I’m fascinated by abandoned houses. Drive through the American countryside and you will see an abandoned house from time to time. Who just walks away from a house and lets it rot by the side of the road??? I sold a house, left it behind, and it almost crushed me, so I don’t understand how a person—or a family—can just leave a house and let it decay.
Don’t we love our houses? Aren’t they symbols of something greater than just a place to lay our heads? Where are the ones who lived there, loved there, and walked away?
