August 14th 2004, the eastern seaboard experienced a statewide power outage: a blackout. It was the day my family moved into our home, the blue house on the corner, seven houses down and around from the first house my parents bought when they were twenty-three years old on Fairview Avenue. I loved the Fairview house. My dad promised me a dollhouse if I agreed to moved into the new blue house on the corner.
The blue house had eighteen trees when we moved in.
This past August we moved out.
