Day 22: The Burned
Today, in a moment of weakness and sheer boredom, I agreed to follow Dannes and Lauren to an burned down, abandoned house near the Linden Centre.
BEST IDEA OF MY LIFE.
I enjoyed traipsing carefully through the overgrowth of weeds and plants mingled with the broken carpet of sticks that blanketed the ground. We observed many things within the house and each dreamed up ideas of how the house burned and what it looked like before.
Dannes wanted to take pictures in the charred ruin but I protested that we shouldn't make a tourist attraction of something that most likely caused an entire family a great deal of pain.
I altogether appreciated the experience and wished to share it, unfortunately I ignored the deep need within me to take pictures and instead focused on looking.
