The House That Built Me

720 Laramie Manhattan Kansas

I grew up here. I made my last annual ‘pilgrimage’ in 2009 after both parents had passed.

I lived in this house at 720 Laramie, Manhattan Kansas, from elementary school through my first two years at Kansas State University when I transferred to UCLA.  Made the annual pilgrimage back from 1963-2009. My father passed in 2002, and mom in 2009. Miranda Lambert’s lyrics touched home  in “The House That Built Me”. I’d love to go back … the lyrics got it right, at least for me. –  “I thought if I could touch this place of feeling, the brokenness inside me might start healing. Out here it’s like I’m someone else I thought that maybe I could find myself. If I could walk around I swear I’ll leave … won’t take nothin but a Memory …” — Smile.
