I’ve happily relocated back to my hometown of New Paltz but there’s always been a little part of me that’s wondered why now?
I’m part of New Paltz High School’s class of 1995 and when I graduated I couldn’t wait to get out! There was a depressed feeling throughout the Hudson Valley as if a voice (deep and menacing) was saying, ‘Get out while you still can! There’s nothing here for you! Go away, get away!’
I was a dramatic teen.
The point is a temporary depression has settled in and I didn’t understand why, nor did I have any idea when or if it would ever lift…
So I left.
