Sissy and I found this lonely heart placed beneath the window on the second floor of the main building. This area no longer exists. The entire complex has been reduced to a field of rubble.
I haven't seen it up close yet. It is so odd to look over where the buildings once stood and see a clear, clean skyline. I remember when The Abandoned was built. I remember the workers pouring the cement walls. I remember feeling so sad at that time--because they'd made my beloved meadow into a cold giant hillside. I missed seeing the foxes play and the birds that came there to nest.
Now I am sad to see this magical place compacted into dust. Strange isn't it?
Soon over 400 homes will be built where this place once stood. Progress, I suppose.
