I grew up for a time in an apartment complex called Pinewood Plaza in Fairfax, Virginia. On my way home from the bus stop after school I would take pleasure in the humid Virginia weather. I'd take a deep breath of the flowers blooming, swing-set swaying far ahead and birds and squirrels scurrying about my feet.
