This week the hosts at WordPress challenged bloggers to find and write about a photo that represents change. I accepted their challenge.
The wrecking ball came to Hillsboro Village today. The building that once housed Cotten Music is coming down and my old neighborhood will never look the same. It will take me a while to get used to seeing a gaping hole where buildings once stood. Later, after construction begins, the sights, sounds and inconveniences of a construction site will greet me every time I walk by. I hope that when the new building goes up that it doesn’t diminish the character of the area, but even if it looks exactly like the buildings standing nearby the new structure will only mimic the character and history of Hillsboro Village.
I knew this change was coming.
I just wasn’t prepared for it to really happen.
