To me the concept of hometown is far removed but yet so familiar. Where I’m from in Ghana, West Africa, your mother’s hometown is your hometown. I have never been to my mother’s town so I cannot call it home. Except the time the bus driver sped past, with a school bus full of antsy middle schoolers, on a field trip. Where I’m from is where I live, Asenua. Sandwiched between two renowned villages Mamponteng and Ahwiaa-Meduma; Asenua is the armpit that connects the arm to the shoulder. A town whose sole purpose is to be bridge whence its name which means cross in English.
Like a cross has many roads, I have never ventured to a destination in Asenua without knowing at least three more routes. Walking on dust roads are the most common means of travel. Red chalky dust coats your shoes as you travelled to and fro. Sometimes red sand particles would get stuck in your eyes, ears and hair when car owners speed past causing a cloud dust to rain down on passersby. I often wondered why they sped, after all 85% of the roads where dead-end routes.
There is one main road in Asenua and it is made of asphalt. The road has no name. There are two sides to the road; the side I live on is for the living, it has colorful houses and lucrative businesses. On the other side of the road is a cemetery dedicated to the dead. In hind sight, the nameless main road, was is testament to the crossroads between life and death. The main road was built for cars, and the dirt paths were created for people but
Throughout Thornton Wilder’s play Our Town, resistance to change is a popular, repeated theme; this theme is easily seen when George and Emily walk home from school together and stop at the drugstore for ice cream sodas. Emily’s caution as to not upset George when confronting him about changing and Mr. Morgan’s negative comments about the changes going on in town and about the passage of time making matters worse, show the seriousness that townspeople of Grover’s Corners take any amount of change.
One of New York City’s most historic yet hippest neighborhoods, Chelsea has also come into vogue as a top business destination in recent years. Sandwiched between the booming Hudson Yards district, the Flatiron District and trendy downtown neighborhoods, Chelsea has much to offer businesses looking to relocate there. Although it has several drawbacks – namely a limited transportation network – its major selling points such as its trendy, creative appeal and diverse office inventory make it a solid deal overall for many companies.
Our Town is a rather unorthodox production. Most playwrights want to go for realism and detail, with huge scene sets or intricate scene changes. Not this one. In Our Town the author (Thornton Wilder) strives to create a play which does not need to rely on scenery and detail, but visualization and the investment of the audience. In this way there is nothing to distract from the core message or plot of the play. What this play does take to it’s advantage are sound effect; with the lack of props or scenery the sound effects give us the perfect amount of imagery to go on. Now within this script there are several directors in which have taken the play and made it their own. Out of three of the plays being: NBC's 1977 representation, PBS’s 1989 representation, and PBS’s 2003 representation. From these three representations one of theme most suitably gets a grasp of what Wilder was going for; simplicity, relatability, and imagery. PBS’s 2003 representation best defines what wilder's vision of his great play was.
This could not be happening. I kept on thinking that I was paranoid, that I was just imagining it, but the longer I searched the more I realized that this was a reality. I was nine years old, and my parents were away for the weekend, on some trip that I can not remember. In lieu of a babysitter, my grandmother, grandma Hetzel, had come from her city home to watch my brother and me. That is what she was supposed to be doing, at least. In the two minutes I had gone on a bike ride around our small cul de sac, my grandmother had disappeared into ruin air.

I stood for a second and took a deep breath of fresh air. The crisp, untouched air flowed as I inhaled the new environment. Too much air began to drift towards me because I was the only one there. It seemed as if everything around me was empty yet, I knew there were others around. It was a surreal moment, nothing but my thoughts and my family populated the airport. As we slowly wandered to the car, the quiet and serene area engulfed us. We remained silent the entire journey to the car; we were too shocked about moving to Michigan to talk. Clear droplets slowly began to fall on the window pane. Each one becoming more and more aggressive and mesmerizing. The loop of the pitter-patter was all I could hear even though my parents were making small talk. In Mexico, I would watch all the people on the street, all the stores and billboard signs and tall buildings. My favorite thing to watch were the lights on a car when it was raining, but now no one would stay close enough to see their lights though the backseat window. My dad was excited that we had come “home”, but it wasn’t home anymore. It’s just where we had once lived and where my family was. People always say that your home is your family, but that’s just a cutesy fib they put on cooking shows to make you love your family. The smooth roads and empty streets, are not my home. They are this weird place that feels like a pile of dirt. It’s not very exciting or rare. You can look through it and find a few special gems, but
