Well this is what Monk's Corner looks like now. It is so different. I remember when there were maybe 6 families living in the area pictured. The Ramseys, Dawsons, Rudds, Kiblers and maybe two more I did not know. The truly sad part is that the rest of the area were vast forest. Well to an 6-8 year old vast has a different meaning, but there was a lot more then. When I was 8 I ran away from home and waited in the woods in front of the Kiblers house for Kathleen to join me. We had planned to run away together. Those woods are completely gone in this picture. While change is good, how long before all the woods of the world will exist only in the memories of those who once played in them. When we moved from Monk's Corner I left part of my innocence d'enfance there. Is it time to run away again? This time I want to leave my Adulthood behind!
