What do local stories and legends tell us about a place and the people who live there? I lived in Connecticut for one of the most pivotal years of my life and so I spent some of Write Across America’s recent visit to that state writing about that year. I might not have been inspired to revisit that year more than three decades in the past if we had not visited a park I visited many times during that year:
- Seaside Park, Bridgeport, CT
- Weir Farm National Historic Park, Wilton, CT
- Indian Well State Park, Shelton, CT (video)
- Sleeping Giant State Park, Hamden, CT (video)
What place defines your unique journey through life?
