Where I'm From
I am from bagels, from Parliament cigarettes, and Keds.
I am from the ninth floor apartment, from a busy city with doormen and elevators. I am from Central Park and the whale hanging in the Museum of Natural History.
I am from the jungle that was our living room, trying to bring life to a cold cement city. From tulips on Park Avenue.
I am from cooking in the kitchen and blue eyes, from Lisa and Phil, Mastrapalo and Bongiorno, and Bagur. I am from too many cigarettes and too much alcohol.
I am from the denial and hurt. I am from secrets and laughter.
I am from "marry a rich doctor" and "never give up". I am from "you can tell me anything". And I did.
I am from Hebrew school,and from agnostics. I am from choose what’s right for you.
I'm from Sicily and Ireland. From Eggplant Parmesan and Stuffed Cabbage
From the mother who kicked her father out of the house when she was sixteen and who has worked most of her life. Who was as much a friend as she was a mother. From the father who never grew up, never gave up, and followed his dreams.
I am from the boxes and boxes of photos, and the pearl necklace I wore on my wedding day. I am from stories about favorite cats and dogs. I am from skipping school, drinking hot chocolate, and sleigh rides in Central Park. I am from card games. I am from holidays on Fifth Avenue. I am from the adults laughing more than the kids.
I am from unconditional love.I got this meme from Susie's site.
Seriously, leave me a message! .
