Shortly before starting kindergarten, we moved to a neighborhood on Dean Road–a stretch of blacktop consisting of seven houses, depending on how you count. Five houses with young children; the sixth with no kids yet, but with a pond; and the seventh my Great-Aunt Mary’s home. Beyond suburbia and bordering on rural, the neighborhood became my slice of city-life heaven.

I made discoveries about time and space, and the neighbors began discovering me.

  2. I didn’t go to kindergarten here. I was born in 1952 and started 1st grade at age 5. Where did you grow up?
