Towns Between

List two things (however closer or far) that your childhood home is between.

My childhood home is between Albany, the capital of New York State (about 100 miles) where I ended up living for nearly twenty years after I graduated from university, and about 500 from Niagara Falls, where I attended Niagara University and met my husband. See, it all ties in quite nicely. It’s a long drive to Niagara Falls and the stretch between Syracuse and Rochester is pretty dismal, but the drive between Buffalo and Niagara Falls is worth the wait, knowing that soon you’ll be in one of the most beautiful wonders of the world. The drive to Albany is not very exciting but the Capitol is a gorgeous old building and the state buildings complex are a marvel. The State Museum is spectacular, too. My hometown of Utica has not muc to offer. It is a sleepy former mill town but it was a nice little place to grow up and I’m glad it was between Niagara Fallas and Albany.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    You’re not far from my neck of the woods, young lady! Howdy, neighbor!
