Everything's Changing....

It is.

The roads we've rode over for my entire life have been recently changed. Totally different. Straight-aways in places curves used to be- curves in places that were straight as an arrow roads I used to drag-race on as a teen. So many of the places I link so many precious memories to are gone away, changed into shopping malls or parking lots or are occupied by totally different businesses than the ones I remember being there. Even the places Paul and I have made memories at are closing down. Boarded up- looking so lost and forlorn it almost makes me cry. I feel like something in the universe is shifting, changing familiar places into something out of "The Nightmare Before Christmas".

It feels eerie....strange...unfamiliar.
I feel uncomfortable on my own stomping ground....and it makes me sad and lost.

I lived in a small town for most of my life and moved to an area 45 minutes away when I married Linda. Now I can go back to that town and walk around in the Walmart and not know a single soul. It's like the town I knew for so long doesn't really exist any more. Strange feelings for sure.
