It’s official.  My childhood home is gone.  Taken by the ironically monikered ”witch fire” of California.  My parents built something out of nothing…and once more, it’s nothing.  Ashes to ashes.

It was just a house.  I’m sure it was more than that to the people who lived there.  It was more than that to me.  When I have dreams of home, I dream of that house…even though I haven’t lived there in half a lifetime.

It’s hard to think about what lies under those ashes.  There are so many memories…and so many demons.  Should I be sad it’s gone?  Or relieved?  Can I let go now?  How do I let go of something that won’t let go of me?  The grip is so tight…even if I let go a thousand times I’m still held tightly in its clutches.  Imprisoned in ashes.

Only ashes.
