    1. It was pretty old. It was a building that was once part of a state hospital. Unfortunately they are tearing it down to build a new office building. Makes me sad.

  1. how very sad — imagine all the lives and memories from the past that once dwelled within those walls. What an apt quote from Marcus Zusak — his novel, “The Book Thief” is one of the most memorable I’ve read — very powerful, just like this image. (Diane J-Schuller)
