Finish the story begins with: “The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood.” I learned how to ride horses there, and spent most of my childhood singing and dancing with the other campers. The windows were always dirty with smudges of our handprints. It wasn’t what you call a luxury apartment, drab and dull for a building if you really like to describe it. But that was where I’ve created some of my poems and stories and it would always be dear to my heart. I made some friends there. We spent our nights looking at the stars at night in our balcony. It wasn’t made of bricks and it never was shining, but I love it the way it was.

    “but I love it the way it was”
    It sums up your story so very well.
    I second roger’s thought. I too love to live there 🙂

    I think you’ve hit upon the secret to a fulfilling life: loving things the way they are, and not the way we wish they would be.
