Home Towns

Jayne Anne Phillips wrote a short story about her hometown in the January 10 edition of Smithsonian magazine. Her closing words hit the nail on the head about home towns: “Towns change; they grow or diminish, but home towns remain as we left them. Later, they appear, brilliant with sounds and smells, intense suspended images moving. We close our eyes and make them real.”
