Oftentimes I will obsessively think about particular spots from my childhood, I've always wondered why some places stuck.

Many of them are mundane spots, yet others are spots where the world and I collided.  

As a child my life was, at times, unsafe and unsure, I lived inside my head a lot of the time, but there are moments where circumstances beyond my control pulled me out and forced me to learn a lesson and live in the physical world. 

As I've grown older, I've integrated these lessons into my life. But the places will always be burned into my mind as clear as ever.
