7796 HOLLYWOOD, COMMERCE CITY
In second grade I moved back to my mom. I believe the incident when I was four made me nervous around grown men, sadly even my dad.
Mom wouldn't have me attend local schools. We commuted fourty minutes to Yorkshire Apartments, and my babysitter's, where I'd catch a bus to Leroy Elementary, where I'd attended kindergarten. I'd stay at Leroy through fourth grade.
Where we lived was strange, like mom's boyfriend. But, one great element was the river-mountainscape covering an entire wall. It made sense to me someone would have that dominate their living room.
