“Yanged From Under”

In early August so many years ago, recalled riding through the beautiful state of Pennsylvania on the turnpike going at high speed while keeping up with the adjacent traffic. Then on to Columbus which was very unimpressive and riding further west to reach Indpls. Yes the Midwest, very unlikable as to the East Coast. Places like Jones Beach which was huge beautiful. Speaking of oceans there was Cape May,in N.J. and Rehobeth Beach in Del. Rock Creek Park which was a massive beautiful forest with all kinds of outdoor activities families were likely to enjoy. Now yanked from under all of this, I actually felt very sad. Yet tried to suppress this by going within myself like I didn’t really care:however it was just the opposite. Really like HCA, the rest of the students, the faculty including the teachers. Felt like part of it, a sense of belonging. The midwest was altogether different. Indpls is the crossroads to America which is well known. However at the tender age of sixteen, I was out of my realm. A different school which in my view was cold uninviting. Although my father was making quite more money and a better position, the family did a lot more arguing than usual no different than anywhere else regardless of the habitat. My aunt and uncle occasionally visited. I was very happy to see them, however my parents became distant which I could never understand and then just gave up as to why. Again I went within myself, as a way of coping, I guess. And of course there was John in Maryland. After leaving we began writing letters and sent photos We both wrote long letters. That was really a highlight.
