The subdivision where I grew up<br>in Lakewood, New Jersey: Candlewood, New Jersey, United States of America
: The Author.
The house where we lived. It took Louise and I a while to find the entrance to the subdivision. Old landmarks like the 7-Eleven and Burger King seem completely erased, as if they never existed. Once we found it, I had the layout perfectly in my head, except the scale was way off. We nearly drove past Putnam Road; it came up so quickly. The street itself seemed narrow, and the backyards which once held football games no longer appeared long enough to bother with a game of catch.

The house, other than a coat of grey paint and burgundy shutters where my father had preferred white and black, and a few new shrubs, has changed not at all. My room is second from the right on the second floor. And we never had a basketball hoop. Although at least adequate in nearly all sports, I was always a hack at basketball. Even later in New Hampshire, where we did have a basketball hoop, it was for my sister Louise.
