Philadelphia - Pennsylvania - USA (von CedricTheCat)
I’d kill to stroll through Philadelphia’s neighborhoods right now. Not just the polished Olde City ones, either.
After work I had dinner with my nephew Agustin. The little man is growing up too fast.

Night out on the Tennyson strip.

A nice evening stroll through Denver’s Baker neighborhood. Prince’s “Purple Rain” in the headphones.
One of my earliest memories is living on Vrain Street. It’s close to the last time I Iived with all three of my siblings, all older than me. The oldest, April, led us to this store where we bought Big League Chew and some candy involving dip sticks. We’d balance on a narrow wood strip that lined our lawn and walk single file the rest of the way.
I didn’t realize at the time how much of a parent April was to the rest of us. Nor did I guess we wouldn’t be under the same roof for long. “Divorce” (though my parents never married) split us up by the time I was five.
These days, one of the schools I work at is blocks away. Being so young, I never really connected the geography of this childhood home to the rest of Denver until I came across the corner store and made time to visit, brushing my hands over the door that I used to tug open.
I’m glad it’s part of my earliest memories.
Since I so rarely show pictures of myself or take selfies, here’s me enjoying a sunny day off.
