This week, create a post about something you’ve left behind. What is your existence like without it? What is its existence like without you? What does revisiting it make you feel? What does the future hold for it? Will you ever look back at it again?
These words took me back in time to those days that we lived in the campus. My husband is a professor in the dental college in this small town of ours. There are different educational institutions here. We got married in 1982 and were allotted quarters in the campus. It was a one bedroom house. Over the years we shifted to a two bedroom house then to a three bedroom house. Our children were born there. They grew up with their friends. Their home friends and school friends were the same. All have now moved away to different parts of the world but the childhood bond remains strong. Campus life is special. We built our own house not far from the dental college and shifted in 2005. We left behind campus life but memories of our life there are very good ones. Through Facebook I am in touch with many of my campus friends and friends of my children. They have their children now. Life has moved on, but that base, campus life, is still strong. Almost every afternoon I volunteer in a Home for the Mentally Challenged. It is at one end of the campus. I walk back home in the evening and pass by those houses we lived in. Though we have left behind that life, it is still a part of my life.
