A bittersweet day for me. An immaculate historic Greek Revival house wasn't worth saving. And my oldest (met the first day of kindergarten) and still dearest friend Anne - moved from our hometown of West Shokan to the Buffalo suburbs the summer before we entered high school - finally gets email.
Here's a link to the Defreest family home page, where there is more information about the house. It was demolished today. I will never shop at Target. (Not that I ever have, but now I have a really good reason).
Stacks of journals and many bytes of essays, from my in-person and online classes, respectively, await.
